Masterclass – Contagious: When Brands go Viral

During the event, we explored one of the most mysterious and misunderstood aspects of the entire digital revolution. We also examined specific examples of Brands that have successfully used the power of the internet, social media and “sharing” to spread their messages far and wide. And most importantly, we looked at the key success factors which Brands employ to get their message out.
