(Pictured: Paul Spain, Sim Ahmed, Richard Irvine)

Social media – the phrase either makes you cringe with disgust or feel a delightful glee in your tummy. Which ever side of the spectrum you sit on, it's hard to doubt the importance of this communication channel for individuals and businesses.

In the latest episode of the New Zealand Digital Podcast, hosts Paul Spain (NZ Tech Podcast) and Sim Ahmed (your merry technology editor at StopPress) talks to veteran social media and community manager Richard Irvine about his experiences at the helm of Telecom and  New Zealand Cricket's social media presence.

Irvine discusses his first steps into the field, the challenges and the opportunities of social media in New Zealand, and how he slays the occasional troll.

Values, impact and purpose: why marketers should be paying attention to culture

The ideas, systems and social behaviours of people come from the context of culture. As large cultural shifts take place globally, it’s more important than ever for brands and marketers to stay on top of the constantly evolving changes as they land on our shores. StopPress spoke with marketers from ANZ New Zealand and Westpac New Zealand, as well as Colleen Ryan, partner at TRA, about the importance of culture in marketing, how to use culture to make impactful messaging, and the results that come from companies looking outwards.
