Back in April I was privileged to offer the keynote speech and a workshop at the first Engage your Community conference for community groups. The day was immensely popular and participants seemed to really be engaged and excited. It was certainly a buzz for me to be part of it.
Now we’re offering a Wellington conference — 4 September 2008, Wellington at Massey University: Engage Your Community – a web conference for community organisations:
If you’ve ever wondered how the web could be better used by your organisation; or know what a blog is, but not how it could be useful; or are a little nervous about opening a Facebook account, then this is a conference for you. If you think the internet is for geeks, or young people, or those with nothing better to do with their time, then this is a conference for you. And if you want to move beyond using email and having a simple website, then this is a conference for you.
Once again I’ll be doing the keynote, and offering a workshop called Keeping up with the Joneses. Spread the word amongst local community groups and encourage them to attend!
The Internet’s here to stay and it has a whole lot more to offer than just email and web pages. We’ll take you through the looking glass and show you a whole new world.
