Face’s Chief Innovation Officer, Francesco D’Orazio, will be speaking at several conferences over the next couple of weeks – starting today! In the next month he’s sharing our latest thinking at the 4 events below. We hope to see some of you there.
Thursday 31st October, Francesco is in Rotterdam to speak at the ESOMAR Next conference for students, giving them insight into the world of market research. He’ll be explaining how we interpret social media data, and hopefully inspiring some young people to launch their careers in our industry!
Monday 4th November, Francesco will be taking part in the Researching Social Media conference in Sheffield at The Workstation. While the conference is already sold out, you can either join the waiting list or follow the discussion on Twitter at #rsmconf13. The event is unusual for bringing together academic and commercial research, so we’re sure it’ll be a fascinating discussion.
Thursday 7th November, our intrepid CIO is back in London where you can catch him at the World Travel Market event where he’ll be sharing some of our work on how videos go viral.
Tuesday 12th November, Francesco will be representing FACE at Strata London, produced by O’Reilly. Held in London, Strata is a world-leading big data and data science conference, exploring the newest data tools and analysis techniques to prepare for a data-driven future.
With programming tracks covering ethics and open data to business and technology, this event should definitely be on your watch list. Keynote speakers include Kaitlin Thaney, Director of the Mozilla Science Lab and James Burke, a historian and futurist dubbed “One of the most intriguing minds in the Western world” by the Washington Post.
Francesco will be gathering up insights from our How Stuff Spreads research series, sharing what we learned after looking at memes like Gangnam Style and viral videos like the Dove Real Beauty Sketches advert. Is it possible to identify patterns and correlations between the type of media content and the way it travels the social web?
If you can’t make it to London on the 12th, follow the official conference Twitter account @strataconf and hashtag #strataconf.
