Data and Social Media
Roger Fisk

Roger Fisk began working for the first Obama campaign in 2007. He helped create and manage a nationwide grassroots fundraising team that focused on low dollar donor events and raised US$100 million in 11 months. He was directly responsible for coordinating and managing the media’s coverage of over 150 events across the country. In the first Obama  Administration, Roger helped to design and implement trade missions before working on the re-election campaign. Outside politics, he has advised many Fortune 500 companies on their PR and marketing strategies.

What is covered:

Communication strategy

How to advance your core message, maintain discipline through daily news cycles, learn how and when to react, and how to influence key demographics.

Steady leadership while creating change

Both Obama campaigns are celebrated for their discipline. Learn how to make circumstances work for you and avoid distractions that decrease focus and motivation.

Engaging and motivating

Tens of millions voted, but millions also volunteered for Obama. This masterclass shows how social media were used to build a movement that multimillion dollar television advertising could not defeat.

Organisational innovation

The Obama organisation took the status of underdog and made it a strength. This masterclass shows you how to succeed in the face of doubt.

Data as a game changer

The more you know about the people you already have, the more likely you are to get those you don’t have to. This section examines how Obama triumphed through intelligent use of information about voters.

Value and expected outcomes:

In-depth understanding of real-time communication challenges. Detailed understanding of Obama’s online strategy in a social media campaign, and lessons learned that can be implemented in your own situation to achieve your strategic business goals. Firm grasp of how to create news that communicates your core aims.
