Socialising at the Edge of the Large Corporation

Join Bob Crozier, Social Network Lead for AIA as he tells us how AIA has developed an internal social media programme.

Launching AIA’s Accelerator programme exposed internal and external messaging and conversations to the culture of the Startup ecosystem. They learnt lessons along the way to leverage the use of social media both internally and, crucially, externally in ways that aligned to AIA’s Brand and Communications Strategy. The marketing lessons learned can be used by companies of all sizes to capitalise on initiatives that emanate from all parts of your organisation and how to work with your communications team to maximum effect.

Plus, a round up of the latest social media news by our very social host – Jay Oatway.
