RightClick 2011


Events - 30 Sep 2011


This marked the 3rd year of RightClick and showcased the impact of new technology in the work place and how to engage with the community online both safely and securely.

Participants got involved through twitter and SMS polls, engaging with presenters both online and through the various panel discussions.

Technology has changed the way we communicate with our friends, family & loved ones - now we are surrounded with new apps and plug in's to connect with people instantly online.

Can organisations survive in the 21st Century if they choose to ignore new technology and try to control the super information highway? 

Case studies were delivered from public and private sector, exploring the challenges and opportunities social media and technology has provided in reaching their target audience.

Topics included:

  • Why should government adopt digital media?
  • Benefits of social networking services
  • Implications for policy makers and those employing young people in the workplace
  • Expanding young people’s digital citizenship
  • Communicating and engaging internal & external stakeholders
  • Security and privacy issues
  • The role of a Government 2.0 Advocate
