OTTAWA, Oct. 21, 2016 /CNW/ - As a new generation of leaders take the reins and citizens everywhere demand greater transparency, involvement and information, the use of social media will become a natural part of the way the public sector engages the population. However, while social media has become mainstream in terms of adoption levels and the sheer breadth of the people and organizations using it, it remains in the early stages of the impact it will have on governments.
The Conference Board of Canada's Public Sector Social Media 2016 will gather social media experts and practitioners in Ottawa on October 24–25 to discuss a wide range of topics, including:
- embracing social media trends and how governments can get the most from established and emerging social media;
- social media, terrorism and radicalization;
- moving your organization to the next level of social; and
- influential leader's lessons in engagement and communication.
When: October 24–25, 2016
Where: Fairmont Château Laurier, Ottawa, Ontario
