Social Marketing – it’s what we do
A simple definition of social marketing is:
“The development and delivery of marketing programmes designed to influence the voluntary behaviour of audiences in
order to improve their welfare.”
So whether you are working in local and central government are a water safety professional, an educationalist, or from
the recreational sector you are a social marketer and will benefit from the experience and insights of one of the key
note speakers at this years conference, General Manager for Ogilvy, Tony Gardner.
Tony is vastly experienced marketing professional and will discuss with delegates key elements to successful social
marketing campaigns. Tony will place particular emphasis on the opportunities available through social media and explain
why this should be a component of your organisations marketing activity. It’s a simple equation in that people are
flocking to the on-line community, and if most of your target audience is there, you need to understand how best to use
social media as part of your overall marketing mix.
Tony Gardner’s presentation is scheduled for Day 1 of the conference at 9.30am so don’t be late and if you haven’t yet
