Gave this presentation at NMA Live's Online PR and Reputation event. The deck begins with a call for brands to "emancipate themselves from advertising", and look at influence in online networks as something that demands a different approach. The "How to Be Lucky" theme is about how brands need to create the conditions where they can be lucky, but they can never control or predict outcomes, as they are operating in complex adaptive systems (online, human networks).
