Through social and digital media, we’re more connected than ever. Or so they said.

Our reality is that most brands and their social teams are actually disconnected – from their customers, from culture, and from the wider business. We also need time to disconnect for the sake of our wellbeing and our work. So in the first event of its kind, Social Chain has brought its network of bright and sharp industry minds together under one roof to debate and advise you how to reconnect, at a time when no brand can afford not to.
