Community Management & Sport
This month we'll be looking at the unique challenges that Social Media Community Managers face within the sports industry. Looking after accounts with millions of passionate followers in some cases, how do they handle defeats & abuse, whilst at the same time deliver quality content to fans when they want it.
It's an area that is under the microscope more than any other. One rogue tweet can lead to disaster, as a few have found out, but there are ways in which to handle it simply and cost effectively. We'll be hearing from a number of those who are on the front line.
Roberto Kussabi (Social Media & Community Manager, Sony Playstation) will be hosting a panel session to discuss the subject and what; what do they do? How do they plan? What tools do they use? What hints & tips can they give? What worked and what didn't?.... and much more.
Joining him on the panel will be;
- Tom Hines - Senior Digital Producer @ BT Sport
- Paul Morgan - Communications Director @ Premiership Rugby
- Sanjit Atwal - CEO @ Squawka
Following the panel, and a 30 min break for some networking, there will be a hints & tips presentation on community management by the fantasic guys at We Are Social. Arm yourself with any questions you may have as there will be a Q&A at the end.
