Red Alert! Harnessing Social Media to Handle a PR Crisis

The Impact of Big Data on Society
Dr Sofiane Tebboune
Organisations are becoming increasingly more sophisticated in their use of data to generate business intelligence. Looking at the other side of the coin though, it is very clear that such practices also have an impact on consumers. This master class attempts to look at the different aspects of big data and their use in organisations, and the potential social issues that could emerge as a result.

How to Secure Board Approval for an Invisible £1Billion Project!
David Roberts MBA
David will draw upon case studies of corporate strategies and their implementation, examining why some strategies were successful whilst others were destined for failure. David will focus on the concept of ?skunkworks? where a project is designed and delivered unconventionally, to develop something quickly with minimal management constraints ? A tough task when seeking management approval!

The event will then finish with the opportunity to network with academics, programme teams and other professionals over a selection of refreshments.
