The fifth annual event, headline sponsored by Welsh fintech pioneer GoCompare, will welcome 2,000 delegates – a mix of innovators, investors, doers and makers – to a new home at Tramshed Tech & Tramshed in Cardiff.  The festival will be filled with keynote speakers, panels, workshops and roundtables on the digital developments that will shape tomorrow’s world.

Pendyris Street, the road immediately outside the venue – just five minutes’ walk from Cardiff Central train station- will be closed to traffic, with an Expo taking place in 13 shipping containers.

Nick Lewis Communications & Hugh James Present “Data management: further muddying murky waters?” Tuesday 7th November 2017, Llantrisant, South Wales

Posted by on Aug 21, 2017 in Blog, Nick Lewis Communications, Training Course | 0 comments

The murky waters of data management have always been tricky to navigate, underpinned by the often complex undercurrents of the Data Protection Act, and next year’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Against the backdrop of the current and new legislative framework, the use of social media both inside and outside of the workplace has implications for all of those who lead and manage staff in terms of productivity and liability. Which voice is it your employee uses when creating a social media post? Professional? Personal? Does it matter? Attendance at this session is essential in order to understand the legal obligations your organisation faces regarding data and digital communications, and how those obligations are practically managed on a day to day basis. Helen Iles of Hugh James will cover all the key issues in an initial presentation, and then will be in conversation with Nick Lewis of Nick Lewis Communications to further debate the ramifications of the new legislation for all those involved with online marketing. There will also be a Q&A Session afterwards, at which you will have the opportunity to enquire on how GDPR will impact on your business.

Social Media Management in an Age of Perpetual National Crises, Atrocities and Disasters

Posted by on Aug 15, 2017 in Blog, Opinion Piece, Social Media, Uncategorised, Workplace | 0 comments

I have made several attempts at writing this blog over the last couple of months, but I’ve always been overtaken by new events and the ever-changing situation. The world is currently a deeply troubled place in which every national or international crisis, atrocity or disaster is greatly magnified and brought to the front of our minds through the prism of social media. But as someone managing a professional or semi-professional social media presence, how do you publicly acknowledge or respond to such tragic or upsetting events? The policy that Nick Lewis Communications has adopted is ‘business as usual’. This may sound heartless or unresponsive. In regard to terrorist incidents, I have the following good reasons for you to consider:   Unfortunately, terrorism has now become a regular occurrence in national life. If a company, organisation or individual expresses outrage and sympathy at one attack but not at another or subsequent one, it could become problematic as you have set a precedent. At what level of attack do we express solidarity? Is there a minimum number of dead or injured at which we or a company feels obliged to comment? Personally, I’d rather not go down that calculating route. By commenting on the attack, we are ‘signal boosting’ the work of terrorism. Terrorists are now fully cognisant of the power and reach of social media, and by commenting on their atrocities we are actually aiding their goals rather than hindering them. There is a risk that a company, organisation or individual could be seen to be using the attack in an opportunistic, disingenuous way to increase awareness of themselves on social media. I recently saw a post on both LinkedIn and Twitter where a Welsh business commented “<Business Name> stands with the people of Manchester”. I could not but feel this had more to do with boosting their own profile and getting ‘engagement’ that helps social media algorithms in their favour rather than expressing actual sympathy per se (although I am sure that the company involved were also sincere in their outrage). However, in light of such attacks, anyone managing a social media feed, either for themselves or on behalf of others, does need to undertake some proactive action. I, personally, would do the following: Review all scheduled social media posts to ensure that anything scheduled in advance cannot be taken to read as either too flippant or problematic in light of a new, unexpected national context or mood. Always look to schedule social media posts or stories that are more sombre and ‘value neutral’ in light of the national context for the following 24 or 48 hours following an incident. Never share any content to do with the attacks...
