At each morning session, from 8am-10am, we're looking at the impact of social media on a particular industry and how the different players in those industries are responding and adjusting to the "€˜social" opportunity. And in the afternoon sessions, from 4pm-6pm, we will be discussing how social media is shifting our relationship with these industries, and the effect of consumer behaviour above and beyond marketing - and what the future holds for them.

About Like Minds

Leading Thinking.

Like Minds unites innovators, thinkers and entrepreneurs together through its series of thought leadership events and co-working spaces.

We were founded in August 2009 amidst the boom of Social Media, where communication was drastically changing, and knowledge was overflowing – creating both the opportunity and the necessity for us to act and turn our ideas into reality. Our mission is to create a platform where participants can join fellow like minds in order to inspire one another and make those ideas happen, all on a level that is accessible both financially and structurally.

Our flagship event is the Like Minds Conference, held annually in London, UK. Through insights, workshops and lunches, an average 300 participants engage with new people over new ideas, and forge the connections to make those ideas happen. Our first Like Minds Conference was in Exeter, UK in October 2009.

“Like Minds is an intellectual playground where thinkers, strategists, agents provocateurs, innovators, challengers and mavericks can open up, share ideas and be inspired in a warm, welcoming and world-wide environment. If you haven’t been, go. You’ll see the future there; most likely, yours.”
