The former chairman of the BBC Lord Grade and the Head of Digital at Number 10 Nick Jones are both set to speak at a digital marketing conference being held in London on 24th May for clientside marketers only.

Lord Grade is among top digital industry speakers in May

The Drum’s Digital Sessions is a thought-provoking conference being organised by MiNetwork exclusively for clientside marketers to meet, discuss and to debate the digital marketing issues and challenges that are making their jobs both increasingly complex and diverse, but likewise increasingly exciting and dynamic.

In his role as non-exec director of leading marketing and events company WRG, Lord Grade’s presentation will be entitled ‘Digital Theatre’ and he will speak about the importance of amazing content in the digital age and how customer interactivity can be boosted by utilising the emerging media now available to companies both large and small.

Also speaking at the The Drum’s Digital Sessions is deputy director of digital at Number 10 and The Cabinet Office, Nick Jones. Jones heads up digital channels and content for the Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Office, including the Prime Minister’s web and Facebook presences and the @number10gov Twitter account. With the interplay of social media platforms rising, creating content and managing conversation is an ever more demanding skill and Nick will share his thoughts on making the most of multi-faceted digital in his presentation entitled 'The Virtuous Circle'.

The Drum’s Digital Sessions will also bring together experts in all areas of digital, social and mobile marketing for the conference that promises to equip marketers with the knowledge to use all digital marketing methods at their disposal to build their brands, engage better with their consumers and ultimately sell more products and services.

Other speakers include social media experts Tim Geary and Dan Neville of Big Communications, mobile marketing specialist Serat Pediredlia, SEO expert Andy Heaps of Epiphany Solutions and digital strategy specialist Andy Wood of Freestyle Interactive.

The schedule will also ensure that there is plenty of opportunity during coffee breaks and lunch to talk to other marketers facing the same challenges as you, to pick their brains and get a better understanding of who is doing what. Two breakout sessions will also enable you to discuss the issues your business is facing in more details with the digital experts speaking at the event.

Speaking of The Drum Digital Sessions conference, organiser Richard Draycott, said: “This conference promises to be inspiring, informative and interactive and the speakers we have lined up are the very best in their fields and will be on hand to answer any questions and discuss any challenges that the delegates have with their digital marketing.

“Having Lord Grade and Nick Jones as our keynote speakers will make this free conference the best value event of 2012 and The Drum and MiNetwork are proud to be involved with what will be a great event. Our digital conference always go down very well and this year’s promises to be full of great content as well.”
