Australian brands and businesses are at grave reputational risk if they fail to grapple with the complex legal implications of social media marketing.

This is the premise of The Communications Council's Social Code of Conduct, a recently launched set of guidelines, spelling out best practice behaviour when working and operating within social media, aimed at helping businesses maintain a high standard of respect, integrity and transparency.

The seminar, entitled Risk Management and Legal Compliance in Social Media, will be led by solicitor Stephen von Muenster, who will share his expertise on how to manage risk and adapt with the inevitable changes ahead.

Says Margaret Zabel, CEO of the Communications Council: "Consumers are increasingly seeking interaction with brands and companies, and clients are looking for ways to better manage communications. So it has never been more important learn how to minimise the risk of social media engagement harming your organisation, client or employee's reputation. This specialised seminar will provide both legal and practical guidance."

The Brisbane seminar follows two successful iterations of the workshop in Sydney, which saw the attendance of over a hundred staff from agencies and clients.

The Seminar is an initiative of The Communications Council's Digital Committee, which represents member agencies' digital interests, driving digital industry leadership, and developing forward and innovative thinking in digital.
