This is a show about culture and society, crisis and social media.

Host, Dom Hawes, is joined by Charlotte Lander, Director, Social Media, Corporate Affairs, Brand & Marketing at Standard Chartered Bank. They talk reputation, social media - the threats and opportunities it brings, but ostensibly today they’re talking about culture and society… it’s the S in your PEST analysis.
