Monday, July 28, 2014 at 2:55 PM

Disruption is a thing of the past. Generic and manipulative social media is easily detectable and ineffective. Not being an authentic and genuine part of your community’s daily lives is a recipe for failure.

In this presentation, Kareem and Hamza will share their unique brand of social media storytelling, demystify engagement myths and will hold accountable brands & personalities that are ruining the industry for the rest of us.
