Table Top: Social Business Design – the key to staying ahead of the game

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Wednesday 30th May, 2012

2:15pm to 2:45pm (GMT)

Facebook and Twitter have changed the way the world communicates. They don't just add a communications channel - social is a new way of behaving and working that makes new demands of skills and structures in organisations. Those brands that recognise the challenge and seize the opportunity will be able to leap ahead of their competitors. Learn more in this roundtable led by global marketing and technology agency LBi.
