Moving in the Right Direction - The 13th Annual GamCare Conference

The 13th GamCare Annual Conference took place last November (2012) in London, UK. The conference hosted a panel discussion titled 'Moving in the Right Direction' which included presentations and discussions on social media, self-exclusion and social marketing. In this video Simo Dragicevic from Bet Buddy discusses proposals on strengthening the UK's self-exclusion processes to better protect consumers.

The presentation is followed by a panel discussion that was chaired by GamCare Deputy Chairman John Hagan. The panel included Professor Peter Collins, former head of Salford University's Centre for the Study of Gambling, whose talk on designing effective social marketing campaigns is also included. The other conference presentation videos, including Professor Jon Grant's session (Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Chicago), can be viewed on the GamCare website.
