18:30 – 19:00: Rules of Engagement: Attracting, Acquiring and Engaging Your Audience

You’ve got the product, you’ve got the vision – all you need now is the user. This panel will discuss the strategies that companies use to engage, convert and optimise users. We will explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of growth strategies, and the role that marketing, product and content play in fostering an engaged user base.
