Marketing in the #Fake News Era Book


The panel discussion will cover how brands are tackling questions such as:

  • Should your brand take social and political stands or keep quiet?

  • What are the benefits and risks of weighing in versus sitting on the sidelines?

  • Is embracing brand purpose good for business or wasteful self-indulgence?

  • What happens when the public calls you out on a political position you didn’t even mean to take?
