THE 7 DEADLY SINS OF INFLUENCER MARKETING
In a world where social has become the new gold rush, brands are increasingly looking to work with influencers. Michael will look at the deadly sins of working with brands; you’ll hear how to fit into a brands’ marketing strategy, how to maximise what they get from working with you and how to ensure both parties get what they are looking for from the relationship.
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED FROM WORKING WITH BRANDS
Driven by her philosophy “One day I will not be able to do this. Today is not that day”, Sophie challenges herself both physically and mentally. Amongst many challenges, Sophie is the only person in history to have climbed the highest mountains in the eight Alpine countries and cycled between them.
