Porter Novelli // 1615 L St, Washington, DC 20036

What to expect: Breakfast Lecture
RSVP here.

As brands and influencers look to earn consumers’ trust, it has become increasingly hard to identify who and what is fact and what is fake. From social media bots to deceptive social platform ads, this new, online landscape leans towards skepticism. But what are brands and agencies to do? By effectively analyzing digital and social conversations, your goal of sustaining trust and transparency can be met.

Monday morning, hear from Jason Mollica, veteran strategic communicator and a professorial lecturer in the School of Communication at American University, where he teaches graduate and undergraduate students analytics best practices.

Hosted by Porter Novelli and the School of Communication at American University.
