Podcasts are episodic series of digital audio or video files which users can download and listen to, often through a subscription. They are distinct from Internet radio, which involves streaming rather than downloading.

But what does that mean to you, your brand, your clients and your communications plans for 2018? Podcasts are an emerging communication tool that  brands are taking notice of and leveraging to attract specfic audiences, from healthcare to tourism, technology to consumer goods.

What are podcasts? How did they emerge as a communications channel? What are the best ways to produce a podcast and what channels do you use to promote them? Is a podcast good for your brand? What are the KPIs? How do I "sell" a podcast to my leadership team and/or decision makers? What sort of lasting impact will podcasts have on my brand?

This session will answer all these questions and more, providing an in-depth look into this medium - and help you determine when a podcast may be a good way to communicate to your audiences.
