He has advised on social media strategies for companies including Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s sustainability and renewable energy initiative.

On Thursday, October 25, these influencers will work with attendees to draw a roadmap on how to navigate social media and social networks to advance a company’s corporate responsibility reputation or protect its brand, while simultaneously seeking to engage or activate audiences. You identify the problem, and they will share unique solutions to these new rules of the road.
