HootSuite at Cognito’s London Breakfast Byte

Rylan HoleyThe role of social media has evolved in the B2B financial services industry. Traditional ways of reaching customers have become ineffective as other organizations embrace direct interactions via social. It is no longer possible to ignore the impact of social media because of regulations in the financial sector.

HootSuite’s Rylan Holey, Partners Manager in EMEA, will speak in a panel of social media experts about this critical industry topic. With his role prior to HootSuite, marketing across across B2C and B2B industries, he will share a unique perspective on how the social wave has hit this highly regulated sector.

Rylan will be joining fellow panellists Allan Schoenberg, Executive Director of Corporate Communications at CME Group, and Vivienne Hsu, Director of Digital & Social at Cognito, in discussing:

  • How social media is influencing and changing the B2B customer journey and its role in reaching key audiences in the sector such as investors, brokers and financial counterparties
  • The impact of social media on the financial services B2B environment and ‘the risk of ignoring’
  • How you can leverage your workforce as brand advocates in a highly regulated FS environment
