Chris Andrew, Managing Director in the UK and Europe, will be sharing his expertise on social business at the following events:

  • At the NetFinance Europe conference in London on 19 November, Mr. Andrew will address how organisations can use social media to engage with customers on a one-to-one basis to ensure that they maximise business selling opportunities in the social era.
  • On 20 November, Mr. Andrew will be speaking at the Future of General Insurance conference in London, during the “The future of products – responding to what customers really need” session and will be highlighting the opportunities available to businesses on social media platforms.
  • On 26 November in London, Mr. Andrew will speak during the “Delivering a superb quality of service” session at theFuture of Private Banking conference, and will detail how organisations can optimise how they deal with customers in an increasingly connected world where social media communication is essential to being successful.

Meanwhile, Peter Caryotis, Director, will be sharing his views and insights at the following events:

  • At the Future of Retail Banking conference in London on 25 November, Mr. Caryotis will detail, during the “A balanced approach to extending credit” session, why businesses are currently in an evolving environment regarding how they engage with customers and how to keep the conversation going in a positive manner.

“We’re now in an era where not being present on social media is a serious issue for an organisation. More and more businesses have come to realise that the way to stay ahead on social media is to be active and to engage with their customers on a variety of platforms. Otherwise, they risk damage to their credibility, or even worse, being seen as irrelevant. These events highlight how organisations are increasingly becoming aware of the need to interact with their customers in a different way, and Hearsay Social is proud of being part of this dialogue across the financial services and technology industries,” said Hearsay Social CEO and Founder Clara Shih.
