On 15 October 2014, I spoke at Social Media Club Melbourne, and participated in a panel discussion about Handling Social Media Disasters. See my SlideShare deck in the presentation above.

My fellow panelists were:

Monika Lancucki – ABC, Freelance Consultant at Orora Group, & Immediate Past President and Acting Secretary – IABC Victoria

Monika is an IABC accredited business communicator with ten years corporate affairs and investor relations experience (AMP, Deutsche Bank, Becton Property Group, PPB Advisory, Orora Group) and a former commercial litigator (Hall and Wilcox, Allens Arthur Robinson). She is a strategist, cool head in times of trouble and a longtime social media enthusiast and advocate. She looks forward to sharing her key insights from ten years at the coalface with Social Media Club Melbourne on 16 October. You can follow Monika @niska7 on twitter or connect with her on LinkedIn.

Also on stage at Social Media Club Melbourne was:

Jordana Borensztajn – Writer, Comedian, Social Media Trainer

Jordana Borensztajn is a writer, comedian and social media trainer. She is also an iPhone addict who has, so far, lived a life free of any Socially Transmitted Disasters. Of course that doesn’t stop her from stressing out. Is that the best hashtag? Is there a better filter? Will that stranger mind if I photograph his lunch for my Instagram account? You know, daily dilemmas. When she’s not on stage, Jordana blogs, consults on all things content and social-related, and presents a social media and online safety program to schools. More info at
