Straight from influencers and businesswomen, Nikki Sharp and Eileen Rhein (who is also a lawyer!), we’ll discuss how they prefer to work with brands – what works for them, what doesn’t, and what advice they have for brands looking to break into this space. Then, to add a brand perspective, we’ll hear from Keith Stoeckeler, founder of HEALENT Group, about his experience working with influencers from the brand side of things, what he’s seen bring brand success and what brands should avoid when working with influencers.
