Hello!

Hello!


Join Twitter, Google, Hootsuite and Brandwatch in Cardiff this April 10 at the Online Influence Conference. Wales's biggest social media technology event is packed with keynote talks from some of the UK's most inspiring entrepreneurs and charity founders, and masterclasses from the world's social media heavyweights. 

The Online Influence Conference (Oi14) is your chance to come, connect, learn and be inspired with us. We sold out quickly in 2012, and even quicker in 2013, (trending UK wide with #oiconf each time!) 

Join us on Facebook, Twitter and follow the blog for all the news about Oi14, social media and new technologies.

Masterclasses


Online Influence Conference speakers

We’ve lined up 4 of the biggest names in social media to run a total of 16 masterclasses throughout the day. Everyone attending Oi'14 will have the chance to attend each one. 

Twitter

More brands are waking up to the power of Tweets, to their ability to be impactful marketing tools, to engage in the moment.

With Twitter adding more targeting and formats, brands can pinpoint their target audiences, in the context of key moments, at the greatest opportunity for brand relevance.

Join Twitter’s master class to learn how brands small and big can use Twitter to connect with their customers when it matters most and win the moment. 

 

Google

Google + is a social networking and identity service that is owned and operated by Google Inc.

It is the second-largest social networking site in the world and is also used as an authorship tool that associates web-content directly with its owner.

Join Google +'s masterclass to learn how you can get the best out of Google +

 

Brandwatch

Brandwatch has fast become the world's number 1 social media monitoring platform, with offices in the UK, Berlin and New York. 

We'll be treated to an in depth look at how social media monitoring can uncover the communities and influencers you want to speak to, how we can monitor conversations and react to the positive and the negative sentiment we uncover.

 

HootSuite

HootSuite is a social media management system for brand management. The system’s user interface takes the form of a dashboard, and suports social network integrations for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Foursquare, MySpace, WordPress, TrendSpottr and Mixi.

HootSuite is all about saving your time and your sanity! Join HootSuite’s masterclass to learn how you can improve productivity by managing all of your social networks with the HootSuite dashboard!

Speakers


Online Influence Conference speakers

The keynote speakers at Oi'14 are making our world a better place - and they're doing it in no small part through social media and technology. Come and listen to how David Hieatt created 'Do Lectures', voted by The Guardian as one of the top ten ideas festivals in the world. Or how Mo Syed used Facebook to mobilise sporting icons, global pop stars and actors to raise awareness of his son's tragic but heartwarming plight. We want to be inspired and to learn at Oi'14, and our speakers this year can help us do both. There are more speakers to be announced soon!

David Hieatt

Founder, Hiut Denim Co. & The Do Lectures

Founder of Howies, Hiut Denim, Do Lectures and Do Lectures USA. David has built and sold brands, created one of the world’s Top 10 ideas festivals (according to The Guardian), and single handedly brought manufacturing back to a village in Wales. He counts some of the tech world’s most influential players as friends and now he’s building a school for young entrepreneurs. In Wales. Oh, and speaking at Oi14 in April! 

Come and hear how David has become recognised as one of the UK's most creative and ethical entrepreneurs, and how he's using technology to change things... again! 

 

 

 

Mo Syed

Founder, For Luca

 
What do Diego Maradona, Pixie Lott, Gene Symons, Mickey Rourke, and the Welsh rugby team have in common? They’ve all raised their hands for Luca, a very special little boy who lost his legs to meningitis aged 3. Luca's family have worked tirelessly since to raise the awareness of that heinous disease. The results have been awe inspiring and serve not only as a masterclass in triumph over adversity but in how to use social networks to mobilise people all around the globe.

Hear how Mo took to Facebook and turned a near tragedy into a global movement raising awareness of Luca’s story and of meningitis around the world.

 

James Eder

Co Founder, Student Beans

James Eder has created and built up Student Beans from just an idea to a nationally recognised brand across university campuses in the UK. James will share his story of setting up a website with his brother in 2005 when he was just 22, branching out from .com to cookbook and beyond and how the business (now called The Beans Group) won Digital Business of the Year 2013, set up Voxburner, a youth insights consultancy and grew to a team of over 40 employees. 

Helping you bring a different perspective, James will leave you with some tangible ideas and examples of what you can do to make a difference and how a bit of innovation can go a long way.

Cardiff Metropolitan University 

Cardiff Met's School of Management is a sight to behold! Built in the vein of an art gallery / Uni campus, its huge, white open spaces will lend Oi'14 a totally different feel to any conference you've ever been to.

Our keynote talks will be held in the huge, tech-rich main lecture theatre, where big screens, big speakers and big topics will make the experience unlike other conferences. 

Then there are the masterclasses - 9 throughout the day held in the smaller, more intimate lecture rooms where you'll get up close and personal with social technology leaders to make your learning experience hugely valuable.

Food will be served, coffee, tea and juice consumed - and then of course there's the post conference bar! We look forward to seeing you in April!
