Press Release   •   Sep 17, 2014 13:10 BST

With just a few more days to go before Like Minds at Social Media Week next week, we've added some more fantastic people to the panels.

We've got big names and revered professionals from the Food, Fashion, Drinks, Music and Luxury industries. And not a social media agency, expert, consultant, guru, maven or ninja in sight...well, maybe just one or two that we've hand-picked, but they are definitely worth it!


Here's who you can look forward to meeting and seeing -

  • Chris Difford, Co-founder of the band Squeeze. Chris is on a panel talking about the future of social in the music industry and will then do a special "Life Stories" session, talking about his life's work and accompanied by some of his songs.
  • Bradley Quinn, Creative Director, Stylus Fashion.
  • Greg BurkeSocial Media Manager, Jamie Oliver’s Drinks .
  • Julia Jones, MD, Found In Music, and Founder, Generation Music Club.
  • Fiona Beckett, Matching Food & Wine.
  • Iain Duncan, Director, The One Group – Radio Bar at ME London.
  • Dan DohertyExecutive Chef, Duck & Waffle
  • Tim RobinsonMD, Twist London.
  • Giles ReesMD, Luxury Degrees.
  • Tom LovettBrand Director, Sofar Sounds.
  • Justin KirbyVP, Strategic Content Marketing at Tenthwave Digital, New York.
  • Matthew Drinkwater, Head of Fashion Innovation Agency.

...and many, many more.

The full programme of events runs from Monday 22nd September to Friday 26th, and will be held at the brand new Crowdshed at 18 Hanway Street, W1 (details), right in the heart of central London, 2 mins. walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station.

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.
