Charity Swales – Senior Digital PR Executive at connective3
What Is Greenwashing And How Can You Avoid It In Your PR Communications?
Charity started her journey at connective3 as a Digital PR Executive and quickly progressed to senior level within the company.
As the climate crisis shows no signs of slowing down, Greenwashing has been the word on many digital marketers’ lips. With environmental movements and figureheads like Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg rising in popularity, it can then be all too tempting to hop on sustainability communications. But if your brand doesn’t have the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials to match its Digital PR comms, this can be disastrous for your Digital PR strategy.
Charity’s talk will look at all things greenwashing and why we need to be avoiding it in our PR communications.

Amanda Easter – Influencer Marketing Executive at Kaizen
Are Influencers Really That Influential?
Amanda Easter manages the Influencer Marketing department at Kaizen. She initially made her start in social media marketing in the US and then moved to London to pursue her Master’s in International Marketing. Since then, Amanda joined Kaizen, where she has worked with a range of Kaizen’s niche and commercial influencer projects.
So, are influencers really all that influential? Well, social media and influencers are now the main driving force affecting the ways young people receive information and make decisions. Gen Z are statistically more likely to trust a brand based on influencer recommendations and turn to Tiktok as their search engines. What does this mean for your brand strategy and how can you leverage this for your marketing?
Amanda will be covering all things influencer, reminding us that in 2022, it should be an essential part of any brand’s marketing strategy, no matter how niche.
