New York, NY (PRWEB) January 17, 2013

Attendees at PR Daily’s Digital PR and Social Media Awards Luncheon sponsored by Synaptic Digital, a Definition 6 company, this month may show up for the trophies, the champagne welcome and the opportunity to schmooze.

But with a keynote address from Gil Wolchock, executive vice president from Synaptic Digital, they’d better come ready to learn.

“We may be sipping bubbly, but you’re going to want to take notes,” says Ragan Communications CEO Mark Ragan. “These are strategies you can take home and put into practice and see the results.”

In a keynote address Wolchock will speak on “Six steps: Change the minds and hearts of content-hungry influencers,” according to Ragan Communications, publisher of PR Daily.

The 2012 Digital PR and Social Media Awards Luncheon will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, January 24, 2013, in New York City. The cost is $395 per person.

Wolchock will present his guide to communication strategies that brands and agencies must embrace in order to identify and engage influencers. He plans to pull in case studies on how some of the world’s leading brands practice influencer communications to strengthen messages in earned, owned and paid media. And he discusses content creation, from video to social media.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to know who the real influencers are: Free online tools that make this job easier
  • Why it’s not enough to write good content: brands must also gather other content for their fans, followers and influencers
  • How to bring influencers into one’s orbit as experts and helpers for one’s customers
  • Lessons and tips for killer content-marketing storytelling
  • How powerful stories about customers’ experiences get written
  • Why internal content marketing must be about an organization as well as its customers
  • How to find fascinating stories about employees and their jobs

The event will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel at 45 East 45th Street.

Mark Ragan and Michael Sebastian, PR Daily’s managing editor, will present the awards.
