Figaro conference


Published on

This PPT was for the figaro conference in London where about 300 people attended. The PPT is about how google is changing and how the only way to keep ahead of the search engines in seo terms is to get in and ply the online PR game....I also talk a little about zeo moment of truth and social proof online. This session was really well received (according to 3rd party feedback) and i think it came down to a combinaiton of useful ideas and insight along with some humor!
