From hidden sponsorships to privacy, Mina Seetharaman (Global Director, Content Strategy at The Economist Group) will lead a panel with Tonia Ries (SVP and Executive Director, Edelman Square), Barbara Basney (VP of Global Advertising and Media, Xerox) and Amanda Rubin (Global Co-Head, Brand and Content Strategy, Goldman Sachs).
