    The YouTuber, who boasts 11 million subscribers, will join social media obsessed writer, comedian and actor David Schneider along with a stellar line up of innovators, world-renowned experts, artists, commentators and those at the forefront of developments in the online world to debate their insights and fears about the radical changes coming across social media.

    From the persistent myths about Generation Z, the fast-changing world of influencer marketing, trust in storytelling, keeping up with social video, audience perceptions, innovative tech trends, to questioning if satire is dead.

    These topics will be debated by world class speakers such as Malachy Browne, 2018 Emmy award winning Senior Story Producer with The New York Times, and Blathnaid Healy , Director EMEA at CNN Digital International.

    These experts will be joined by brands in the know, such as Guinness and Paddy Power Betfair to create a fusion of experiential learning, world class talks, one-to-one expert clinics, future tech demonstrations and entertainment to rival any live experience.
