Making impact by building authentic ventures for real people through social media

The things we know about social media and human behaviour give us the elements of the perfect formula to build a better world. Specifically, social psychology offers tools to understand the dynamics of the user making good and bad choices online. In her keynote, Dr Uski describes how purpose can be integrated into social media and how it changes everything around it through her own journey creating a company providing legal help to social media users and gamers.

The Magnificent Art of Podcast

What’s hot in communication right now? dasprogramm would say podcasts. There is no easier and informative way to reach an audience, crowd or community by using the magnificent art of the voice!  But how do I find formats that fits me? Why are there intros and tags? How do I develop an authentic storyline? Can I produce podcasts by myself? Do I need a professional to do the job?

Who do we talk about when we talk about our community?

The ICRC has 10 million followers on our social media platforms, and 16,000 staff working in 80 countries to protect and assist millions affected by armed conflict. With such a diverse audience, who do we mean when we talk about our community? How can we best engage with supporters and affected populations? Is it possible to be locally relevant with a global reach?

Sum-up + Connecting Humans Experience

“Who are you” and “what do you do” are common questions in professional-, social- and romantic settings. Yet most people turn to things such as university degrees, the caliber of a company or the status of a job title as a reply, but confused to actually answer the question and the purpose of what they are doing.

Social studies and extensive research in psychology, science and spirituality points at the same denominator on how to live fully, connection. We are hardwired to connect to others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. What’s life without connection?

In Connecting Humans we let you explore how to. Instead of talking about algorithms, SEO or KPI’s, and instead of learning how to sell to brands or businesses, we encourage you to focus on the humans working in these brands and businesses, or those using your products and services.  Get to know the humans behind the job titles, business cards and online profiles.

If you want to live fully, you first have to be human.
