Dean McBeth, Old Spice Community Manager at Wieden + Kennedy, as well as Senior Strategist for Procter and Gamble brands (if that's too much of a mouthful, just call him by his office nickname, which is Robot), gave a talk called "Old Spice and Exotic Social Media Animals" at The New Communicators, giving a behind-the-scenes look at how the successful marketing campaign came together.
