Social media & networking, Work

Social media and Government workshop

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be facilitating the Social media and Government workshop as part of the Web Directions South: Government conference program on 20 May in Canberra.

From the official blurb:

Social media – blogs, wikis, social networking services, online communities, folksonomies/tagging, social search – are reshaping what citizens expect from government services. Areas of government, from health and policy development to tourism and the cultural sector, are all being asked to deliver better, more interactive, more citizen-centric, more engaging, and personalised online services.

If you have any thoughts on e-government, sites that you think would be worth showcasing, or interesting workshop techniques, feel free to leave a comment :)

It’s a full day workshop, which will hopefully be a lot of fun as well as informative for participants. If you’re interested in attending, pricing and registration details are on the site.

(Astute observers will notice that the workshop takes place two days before I present at the CPA Centering on Excellence conference – so it’s shaping up to be a big week!)
