Communicating in a Hyper-Connected World
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (AEST)
Communicating in a Hyper-Connected World:
a facilitated discussion
“We are not seats or eyeballs or end users or
consumers. We are human beings and our reach exceeds your grasp.”
The Cluetrain Manifesto, 1999
- How well are you navigating the new media landscape?
- What are the broader implications you face as a communications professional?
- Is your organisation sufficiently equipped to communicate with a networked marketplace?
The advent of the social web has sparked a fundamental transformation in the way people communicate, connect and collaborate, and this in turn is having a profound effect on the way marketing and communications professionals go about their business.
Communications provocateur and battle-hardened PR Warrior Trevor Young will facilitate an all-in discussion on the major themes, opportunities and challenges emerging from an increasingly networked world. This is not just about Web 2.0 but the broader societal implications of an environment in which “markets are getting smarter, and getting smarter faster than most companies”.
Trevor will ignite debate and challenge your thinking. This is a BE HEARD® event – bring your view!
This is one IABC/Qld MeetUp you won’t want to miss. Mark your diary for 18 August at 5.30pm, and watch this space over the next few days for more information and an invitation to join in the pre-event discussion.
“Trust is the new control”
Jennifer Frahm, IABC Victoria president-elect
