Apologies up front - but this is a rather Sydney focused post!
There are some great events over the next couple of months in Sydney... so - here they are:
BarCamp Sydney 3
Date: Sat 5 & Sun 6 April 2008
Where: Roundhouse at UNSW on Anzac Pde, Kensington
BarCamp Sydney is only up to it's 3rd event - but if this one is anything like the other 2 - should be a cracker! And it's extended to 2 days - plus a few intermittent social events. Definitely worth participating - oh, that's a warning - it's a spectator free zone!
AITD: Gen Y - How to engage, develop and keep the graduates of today
Date: Wed 9 April
Time: 5.45pm - 8.15pm
Where: Cliftons - 190 George St, Sydney
The promo blurb says: " It is often said that Gen Ys are always wanting more, are hard to satisfy and even harder to retain. Various reports have suggested that learning and development opportunities are highly sought after by today’s graduates, and this can often make the difference between graduates staying with or leaving their respective employers."
I wonder if this is exclusively a Gen Y behaviour.. hmmmm...
AITD National Conference: Learning Alive!
Date: Tue 22 & Wed 23 April, 2008
Where: Australian Technology Park, Redfern
Huge range of workshop sessions, keynote speakers, expo, dinner, awards - the whole whizz bang!
Walkley Foundation: Social media and public relations - are you ready for the audience to join in?
Date: Tue 6 & Wed 7 May, 2008
Where: NSW Teachers Federation, 37 Reservoir St, Surry Hills.
This conference is focusing on the online communications strategies for Public Affairs Professionals and engaging the media in the evolving multi-user environment. Great line up of speakers and panels - looks like some hot topics being debated!
