Practitioners in public relations and communications, marketing and branding, CEOs, business development managers, will also find this summit very useful, as it will answer some very pertinent questions as they think about employing the services of influencers. Some of the topics to be treated will include “Understanding How Influencers Work”, “How to Find and Manage Influencers, Which Influencers Will Guarantee High Return on Investment?”

There will also be a speed network session where influencers will have at least, 5 minutes interactions with representatives of organisations at the summit to explore possible collaborations.

These will be preceded by a stimulating panel discussion on “Purpose v Popularity v Profit”, which will get participants to think deeply about their place in the budding industry and how they can ethically take advantage in an industry that is growing globally.
