After the Social Media seminar last week, lots of you have been in touch asking for the presentations from the seminar. Below you can find Andrew Lloyd Gordon’s presentation on the topic of Social Media Marketing and PR in the Networked Economy. It was the first time that Andrew had spoken at a KMP seminar, and he proved to be very popular. Andrew will also be co-hosting a workshop on the 6th June on the topic of Online PR and Blogging.
