‘What equals real influence?’ was one of the key themes of the first-ever Influence Live, hosted at the London School of Economics on January 30.
Actor Ralf Little, known for his passionate defence of the NHS, discussed engaging with politicians and critics online and the minefield of being a celebrity with opinions. There were some fantstic questions from the audience and lively discussion. It’s really worth checking out some of the blogs guests wrote after the event. Click and click.
After some excellent insight on crisis comms, influencer relations and career building there was a fascinating panel discussion on the building of new brands in the restraunt business before a moving talk with International Rescue Committe’s Melanie Ward on communicating the story of the refugee crisis.

Thanks to everyone who came along and had so many interesting questions for our speakers and to all those who made Influence Live happen. The next Influence Live will be in autumn, keep an eye out for updates on @InfluencePRMag.
