Organizations’ communication with internal and external stakeholders is undergoing change. Social media enable organizations to interact with its stakeholders online. However, the affordances of these new technologies bring some major cultural and linguistic challenges and opportunities for global companies.
Join us on 12 March when researchers and social media practitioners discuss the challenges that companies are facing when managing their social media relations with customers, markets and society. Margrethe Mondahl (Associate Professor, CBS) will moderate the discussion.
Look forward to meet Kasper Kofod, Social Media Manager at Novo Nordisk, Rikke Krag Jespersen, Global Community Manager at Coloplast, Michael Etter, Post Doc, and Barbara Dragsted, Associate Professor, both from the CBS Department of International Business Communication.
Join us afterwards for a reception with networking opportunities.
