Sam was recognised in 2015 by Information Age as being one of the UK's top 50 data leaders and influencers.
David is the Head of Digital Platform for HSBC. His focus is on innovation across digital platforms (mobile, wearable, etc.) to create 21st century financial services in global and China markets - leveraging transformative technologies.
The format of the event will combine case studies and panel sessions. The speakers will address a broad range of topics, from the difference between users/viewers and engaged fans to the use of digital tools to convert engagement into commercial activity.
The Digital Fan Engagement Masterclass aims to provide an exclusive opportunity for top executives representing rights holders, media operators and brands to get ahead of the curve in the fast-changing digital ecosystem. As all iSportconnect events, it will be invite-only and will operate under Chatham House rules to encourage free exchange of ideas and views.
As always at iSportconnect events, networking will be the order of the day, and the unique atmosphere of the All-England Club will make meeting new people and learning about new opportunities all the more enjoyable.
