Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) provide unprecedented opportunities for targeting. However, growing data privacy concerns are evoking pushback.

Discover what you need to know to guide your company or client through this unchartered landscape. Hear unique experiences and perspectives on what implications of the digital data paradigm mean for professional communicators.

You’ll also:

  •  Discuss methods of applying collected data analytics to marketing, PR and communication initiatives.
  •  Learn about potential policy and legal implications that, if enacted, could impact marketing and communications.
  •  Discuss how savvy communicators can seek a balance to avoid consumer burnout, and increased desensitization and/or withdrawal from engagement.
