Programme Highlights
    • From Monitoring to Measurement
      Brian Solis - FutureWorks
      Social media is inspiring a new genre of intelligence. With the abundance of listening and monitoring tools available today, businesses now have access to real-time insight and intelligence. The ability to know what people say, think, and share is inspiring organizations to create infrastructures around discovering and tracking relevant conversations. But this is about more than listening. Businesses must also learn and adapt to not only compete for the moment, but also for the future.
    • Extracting Context and Meaning from Social Media
      Keith Woods-Holder - VP Research, Glide Technologies
      With the huge number of threads and conversations in social media, how are companies supposed to keep track of what's important? (Let alone use it as actionable intelligence?) In this presentation Keith focuses on how to 'clean up' data and how to make it more relevant at the organizational, departmental and individual level, what to look for in tools to help you accomplish this and how to turn charts and analysis into a social media strategy.
    • The Story of Monitoring & Listening: Past, Present, Future
      Simon McDermott - Attentio
      Social media monitoring and listening has evolved dramatically since the middle of the last decade. Simon McDermott, co-founder of Attentio, one Europe's first social media monitoring companies, will share his experiences of the last 5 years. He will also discuss the future of monitoring, the threats and opportunities that companies may encounter, and the potential future value that can be created or destroyed by the brands that are now buying into this market in increasing numbers.
    • Using Social Media Monitoring to Crowd-source Product Feedback
      Gianandrea Facchini - Founder and Owner, BuzzDetector
      Based on a highly innovative case study involving leading pharmaceutical company, Boehringer Buscofen, Gianandrea will demonstrate how to use social media monitoring to successfully crowd-source product feedback. Now, twelve months on from this project, he will explain how to use the insight gained from this kind of A/B testing to enhance produce development and increase sales.
    • Making Sense of Twitter: A Monitoring & Analysis Case Study
      Nicolas Saintagne – Spotter & Sophie Gubert, Duke - A Razorfish Company
      With more than 200 million users, Twitter is a "niche" social network which gives a snap shot of how the web will be used in the future. It is therefore necessary to include it in the conversation monitoring strategy of a brand. Through the analysis of 50 000 tweets collected on a retail market sector, Nicolas will analyse how to categorise opinions expressed by consumers about the brands and will discuss the use of Twitter as a source for marketing Intelligence.
    • Qualified data is the basis of monitoring
      Frédéric Montagnon, Chief Marketing Officer of Wikio Group
      The measure of your e-reputation and the impact of your communication is based on data processing. Which are the relevant data for your brand? How to identify the trusted voices on the internet? And how to evaluate authority? Do you have to process all the content which refer to your brand? The key issue is the quality of the index you work with.
