Internet week – NEW YORK CITY

#IWNY - [MAY14-21]

So, I've been lucky enough to have been asked (umm, obviously accepted) to go to New York City for 2012 Internet Week..! Internet week I'm told, (and according to my research) is everything digital marketing and more on steroids!

Very very excited to be in the mix and more importantly it'sactually quite more exciting to be working for a company that's not only hungryto learn what new tools, techniques and best practices are floating around theworld, but are willing to allow me to go on a quest to find out!

Seriously looking forward to bringing back some big gems; not only for my employer, but for you! I mean, how often do you get to go to the city that is the epicentre of well...everything; with the objective to look beyond the holiday goggles and sponge it all up.

Event I’m MOST looking forward to:
The 7th Annual Conversational Marketing Summit
Working for a product based B2B, still reliant on print, this might be what the doctor ordered, though with an additional price tag of over $1K, it better deliver!

Event I’m LEAST looking forward to:
SEO for Bloggers
It starts at 6AM…that’s all.

Stay tuned people!

STOP. COLLABORATE AND LISTEN

Are QR codes really the answer?  Who would have thought when the National Cabinet (Australia's state and federal heads of) and their teams got together, to talk about a "state of the art" contact tracing system here in Oz, that was required to bridge the real world to the digital, that we’d land on QR codes... oh my. Today's genius  Think about where we're at with technology in 2021. All the genius we have access to from remote plant climate management like that offered by Roots Sustainable Agriculture. Tech for brain powered prosthetics. Or how about noses (yes, like the one on your face) with artificial intelligence (A.I) like that of Brainchip Holdings, which have the same sniff sensitivity to minute quantities of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) as a dog's nose developed in 2017. These A.I. noses can, through smell, identify diseases including Parkinson's, cancers, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis and infectious diseases, such as, you guessed it,

4 things to do first on social media

You have a website, now what? It's still somewhat surprising, that businesses (both online & traditional) are still in the dark about social media and what to do first. So below are 4 things to take care of first, on social media: 1. Get access: Is your I.T. department part of the silly bunch who still blocks YouTube, Facebook or Twitter? A study conducted by The University of Melbourne has found that, basically, you’re 9% more productive then someone who doesn’t surf the web (non-work related surfing). Video sum up of the study (University of Melbourne): http://youtu.be/Ga-8__7tgkE if you prefer to read about it, click here . 2. Get a copy of your company’s social media guidelines: A quick search on Google, for some of the bigger companies such as Telstra, Deloitte, etc have their internal social media guidelines available for download, and if you’re lucky enough to develop guidelines for your company, remind everybody they are called guidelines, not roadblocks. 3.

She'll be right...

Having grown up in a house with 9 women at one point, all fiercely independent and powerful women at that, ensuring that "she'll be right" is something that's very important to me. Fostering an environment both socially as well as in the workplace that's inclusive enough, where women thrive and are given equal opportunity to develop as leaders, should be important to all of us. Stereotypical feminine qualities that are often seen as weaknesses in workplaces, communities and in politics nowadays, are the very same qualities that we should demand in all leaders. Nurturance, sensitivity, compassion, expressiveness, modesty, humility and of course empathy to name a few. Leaders wanted! We don't just need more females in leadership roles, we need more people in leadership roles to personify stereotypical female qualities. Maybe then, she'll be right...
