Brands are integrated into all aspects of society and, as consumers demand them to be more responsible participants, brands are expected to be more personal and transparent with their target audiences. Yet, in a world full of social media fads and temporary bandwagon philanthropy, can brands ever really be considered authentic? Join us for a conversation around brand safety, the use of social influencers and managing an authentic brand image in today's market. We asked: Are brands for real?
