[1.5 hours California MCLE credits available*]

Social media represents real opportunities and real risks for celebrities and producers, athletes and teams, and all other participants actively engaged in the sports, media and entertainment fields. The global social media landscape is rapidly and dramatically changing and many struggle just to keep up. While the potential upside of fan engagement facilitated through social media platforms is significant, mismanagement of social media can lead to disciplinary actions, fines and suspensions and most importantly damaged reputations of individuals, companies and brands. Join us for a lively discussion regarding balancing the unique risks and opportunities presented by use of constantly evolving social media tools in the creative fields.
