The content doesn’t stop there. Whether it’s rhetoric, the attempted repeal of DACA or building a wall as an immigration strategy, Trump and his proposed policies have influenced the fabric of society not only in increased political activism but also in the way we communicate, especially on Twitter. The CMC is bringing together a panel of A-list journalists to discuss the power of the multicultural vote, predictions for mid-term elections, the effect DACA has on our education system and hiring practices and brand commitment to Hispanic efforts. Moderated by Roberto Orci, CEO of Acento, The
Hispanic Brand in the Trump Era
features broadcast journalist, news anchor and author Maria Elena Salinas and Co-Founder & CEO of CIEN+, Lilly Gil Valleta.
The term influencer has become one of the industry’s most over-used buzzwords, but what do influencers really do and what tangible value do they bring?
Influence of Influencers
isn’t your typical influencer session. As moderator, President & CEO of Pinta, Mike Valdes-Fauli will ask expert panelists Gaby Natale, president and co-founder of AGANAR Media, and Marla Skiko, executive vice president and director of digital innovation at Starcom MediaVest Group's multicultural division, about measuring engagement, ROI, pay-to-play, celebrities vs. thought leaders and the ethical boundaries of payment disclosure.
With record ratings, revenue and merchandise sales coming from the Latin market, no sports enterprise can afford to ignore this demographic. In
