Trust in the Age of Fake News

Social networks like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have long become part of our everyday social and business lives. It's no longer a question of whether you need social media for your business, just how you use it.

The Fujitsu Social Media Night takes place on Tuesday 5th November 2019 at Fujitsu Forum 2019, which opens its doors the following day, and it is going to be an evening to remember!

Under the theme "Trust in the Age of Fake News", we will explore some of today’s most controversial issues, like the social implications of fake news and how trust can be built and maintained in the world of online communication.

Fujitsu is delighted to team up with our partner NetApp to host this insightful and enjoyable evening focused on the latest digital social media trends.

After the welcoming by Rupert Lehner, Fujitsu and Richard Hegberg, NetApp, the evening will include outstanding keynote speakers, including the BBC’s internationally-renowned digital expert Kate Russell and the Norwegian economic philosopher Anders Indset. Following their presentations, they will join a lively and engaging panel discussion on the key challenges of driving trust in the digital age, together with Dr. Joseph Reger, Fujitsu, and Paul van der Lingen from our partner NetApp. The whole event will be hosted live on stage by Entertainer, Author and Model Riccardo Simonetti.

The discussion will be followed by a relaxed evening of networking and music.

We hope you can join us at this special event. Secure one of the exclusive limited tickets now!
