This morning Battenhall hosted one of the opening events of Social Media Week London 2013. We presented three topics:
- The current state of the social media economy and what brands need to know for corporate and consumer comms
- Our FTSE 100 report, a new piece of research into how companies in the index are using Twitter and social media for comms
- What's next: five future trends for brands looking to invest time in social media
We were humbled by the turnout. It appears that the promise of Cronuts, Jimmy's Iced Coffee and the opportunity to sit in the famous lecture theatre that Faraday presented his groundbreaking technology experiments in 200 years ago was enough to draw a crowd 🙂
Some of the attendees have blogged the event already. Cake's review, eModeration's, PR Social Design's , Alison Battisby's, Royally Social's and Viral Crush's are all hugely in-depth, and if you weren't there, you'll get the full picture if you read them (You'll need to know Norwegian for the latter).
We have also put together a Storify of the tweets from the event. We counted over 900 of them, which propelled us to trend in the UK on a rather busy news day too. And if you'd like to watch the video of the event too, our live stream is here. Thanks as ever for your support.
