AA Global CEO Kirk Akdemir Chairs Social Media Event

Our CEO Kirk Akdemir was asked to chair an event organised by the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce entitled ?Social Media in International Business?. Keynote speaker at the event was Rax Lakhani, Head of Social Media at PR agency Lucre.

The event, which took place on the 28th March 2012 at the Holiday Inn Marina Hotel in Hull was attended by businesses from the region wanting to find out more about how to use social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn more efficiently in their businesses.

Kirk Akdemir said “I was delighted to be asked to chair this event. I, like many other businessmen, knew that using social networking sites for business purposes is very popular not only by large corporations but businesses of all sizes, and there are many benefits of doing so but wasn’t exactly sure what they were or how to maximise these benefits”.

Kirk added: “I found the event very interesting, especially due to the fact that Rax Lakhani is such a well informed and experienced individual who is also a great public speaker. Rax has many years of experience within the communications industry, working with brands such as Hallmark, Intel, NSPCC, Smirnoff, Guinness and Marmite. He has also worked as Head of Digital Communications at the Ministry of Justice. My congratulations also goes to the International Trade Centre at the Chamber who organised the event. I am sure everyone who attended enjoyed the event at least as much as I did”.
