Companies such as Spotify and Jamie Oliver Group will be speaking at talks for Like Minds, as the platform is set to run two talks a day during Social Media Week (22-26 September).
Each day will see a new subject – food, fashion, drink, music and luxury – taking the spotlight, with one talk taking place between 8am and 10am, and a second event between 4pm and 6pm.
Each morning session will look at the impact of social media on the specific industry of the day, while the afternoon session will focus on how social media is shifting our relationship with these industries.
Monday morning’s session on food will be moderated by Ben McCormack, editor at Square Meal magazine. Panellists include Subi Gnanaseharam, social media manager at the Jamie Oliver Group; Dan Doherty, executive chef at Duck & Waffle; Karen Fewell, director of social media and digital marketing at Digital Blonde; and Justin Kirby, VP of strategic content marketing at Tenthwave Digital, New York.
The Drum is a media partner for the series of events.
