A delegation of speakers from Social Media Week Bristol have been selected to speak at Social Media Week Warsaw, sharing their expertise with sell-out audiences of Poland’s marketing, media and technology professionals.

Supported by Business West, with bursary support from the European Regional Development Fund, and the Department for International Trade funded programme, Export For Growth the delegation includes Susannah Streeter, Mel Bound and Alexei Lee, each of whom led popular sessions at Social Media Week Bristol 2018 and run successful digital-led businesses in the region.

Taking place in Poland for the first time from 14th June 2018, Social Media Week has a busy agenda of over 40 sessions, offering advice, guidance and inspiration.

“It’s fantastic to see the trade links created between Poland and Bristol in this way and shows how easy it is to export creative services and expertise between the two locations,” said International Trade Advisor, Fiona Parnell.

“This invitation to speak at Social Media Week Warsaw is testament to Bristol’s reputation for expertise in the creative, digital and tech sector,” commented Sarah Woodhouse, Organiser, Social Media Week Bristol.”

A business news broadcaster with more than 20 years’ experience with major UK networks, Susannah Streeter has worked with many organisations, helping develop the best presentation techniques for use in the digital world. Her session, ‘Telling Your Story on Social Media’, will explore why firms need to think like journalists when posting on social media, including how to tell a story well and use video most effectively.
