Akolade is excited to bring you the newest event in our SM4Gov series, the Social Media in Government Conference coming in Melbourne on November 10th -12th, 2014.

This year's conference aims to address the ‘Wild West’ of Social Media in the Public Sector by offering strategies to develop a more sophisticated and nuanced approach in online communication exchanges. In offering strategies to enhance the engagement and responsiveness of the citizen-participatory model, this conference will help to re-shape and re-resource the Public Sector’s social media presence to more successfully engage into the future.

The end goal of building a more positive interactive relationship with online communities will be achieved through discussing credibility concerns to humanise Government, identifying essential language requirements, how to build a strong ‘brand’ in a highly industrialised society and new technological possibilities.

Key Benefits of attending:

  • Assess new social media tools and techniques to better engage with the community
  • Strategies to better tailor your social media communication plans to invite a more positive dialogue
  • How to manage risk, discover new approaches and leverage opportunities to build a more comprehensive online community
