In a world where virtual influencers are becoming the reality TV stars of tomorrow, smart technologies are evolving faster than ever, and fake followers and fake reviews pepper the landscape – what is the best way to move forward with integrity and authenticity? Mr. Urbach’s session will provide an exciting and insightful guide to navigating the social media, privacy and regulatory maze.
