Jim Tobin’s Session(s):
With an unprecedented pandemic that upended our lives, a volatile political climate that rages on, and calls for social justice becoming louder than ever, brands have a lot to consider when trying to enter conversations on social media these days without sounding tone-deaf. Partnering with influencers adds another layer of complexity as brands give up some of that comfortable control to content creators. This session will cover examples of where brands shined and brands who’s missteps cost them dearly. With each example we’ll identify actionable ways brands can move with the speed of the social conversation in their influencer partnerships.
