Socialise your boss

Engaging management in Social Media

Should CEOs leave Facebook and Twitter to their marketing, comms and customer service people or is it essential they join in? Is this helpful or harmful to their company and role as CEO?

To answer these questions – and yours – we have the CEOs of NZ's newest NZX20 company, largest general insurance company and a leading advisor on public relations to NZ corporate leaders.

RSVP here and bring your boss!
