Another Speaker for CTRM Conference Announced

A fascinating area of uncertainty in commodity trading is in the growth of data and potentially the use of social media. We have this covered at the CTRM Conference as we announce another speaker on its agenda – Digital Marketing and Strategy Specialist – Tim Buchanan. Tim is a Director at Gro Digital Ltd (, a digital communications and technology agency based in London EC1. It help brands and organisations harness audience driven content from across the web to deliver authentic business stories and campaigns and it fully understand social media. I for one am looking forward to hearing what Mr. Buchanan has to tell us about the role of social media in commodity trading and its impact on technology.

The agenda is now more or less finalized and what a compelling agenda it is. We have one more speaker to announce next week and a number of other roundtable guests to announce closer to the date of the conference on October 2nd. Please take a look at the agenda but note that tit is likely to be modified in terms of speakers order and so as we get closer to the event. Things delegates will learn about include;
