All sessions from #SMWONE, our four-week virtual conference program, are now available on-demand.

Today, we are excited to announce our first wave of speakers for the 10th edition of Social Media Week London taking place 31 October – 1 November.

This year’s event will continue our 2019 global theme, “STORIES: With Great Influence, Comes Great Responsibility,” a conversation that will explore how social media has become the most influential storytelling platform, with the power to unite or divide the world.

Our programme will include an exciting lineup of leading storytellers, brands, platforms and agencies, who will weigh in on this important topic across 14 distinct tracks and over 50 keynotes, talks, panels, and workshops.

Here are a few highlights from today’s announcement:

C-Level Marketing Experts

Verena Papik, Chief Marketing Officer at Tunemoji, develops comprehensive business and growth strategies for the “MusicGIF” platform. In only six short months under her leadership, the company has evolved from being a simple tool for creators to a fully fledged social platform – providing an opportunity for users who are sharing the same passion for pop culture to connect and engage with each other. Verena has successfully fostered a strong sense of community on the TuneMoji platform by helping to develop emerging influencers and by working with top artists like Cardi B.

Her dedication to the industry over the past eight years landed her a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Europe’s Media & Marketing landscape in 2019.

Product/AI Leaders

As a Product Designer at Google AI, Paulina Mustafa is responsible for designing seamless experiences that make it easier for people to interact with AI. Her primary goal is to develop products that better understand human nature and, in turn, create more comfortable environments. She approaches her work with the rigor of a mechanical engineer and the optimism of a product designer, and is passionate about working at the intersection of the physical and digital worlds.

Prior to working at Google AI, Paulina designed products for Google, Essential, and Apple.

Forward-Thinking Creatives
