The explosion of communications through social media has fundamentally changed our advertising reality and the perception of the advertising promise. And with the continuing emergence of new media platforms, challenges abound.

But regardless of the media platform, advertising is all about telling stories.

  • So what happens when you allow others to share in your corporate storytelling?
  • Are you just handing over your brand to consumers?
  • What are the risks and rewards of this kind of consumer engagement?
  • How do you maintain advertising standards and corporate ethics in these uncharted waters?
  • How can you preserve brand integrity in the face of a viral campaign?
