Coffee and Networking Break

Social Media and your High Net Worth Clients

11:00 - 12:00

As high net worth clients can be notoriously private, it is often assumed that this means they are not fully engaged with social media, but this is not the case.

In this session, Factor 3’s social media expert Laura Sensecall will help you understand where to find your clients on social media and how to engage with them in a meaningful way.

Following Laura’s presentation, Simon Giddins of Blackstone Consultancy will show how social media use by high net worth individuals and their families can reveal everything about their routines and lifestyles, making them easy targets for criminals.
