"Scaling Editorial Content Solutions"



FCS New York is delighted to partner with Reuters to stage a unique breakfast presentation about a unique financial marketing case study: Bank of America's successful content campaign from the World Economic Forum 2019.

When you're a global player and the stage is Davos, Switzerland, where the world's leaders in government, industry and culture gather for a pre-eminent meeting of the minds, you have to have a game plan to seize this branding opportunity.

On April 24th, at Reuters' New York headquarters, we'll hear from John von Brachel, SVP, Content Marketing Executive, Bank of America, about their campaign to engage their audiences through a dynamic and highly effective content program -- on an enormous, global platform -- driven by key partnerships with leaders in Journalism and Social Media.

Joining John on stage will be executives from those two partners: Jessica April of Reuters and Christine Smith of Twitter.

We invite you to come learn how to scale editorial content through social media solutions to connect with your clients, build your brand, and make a statement about your place in the world.
