Gov 2.0 Lunch in Parliament House Canberra with Margaret Manning

Margaret Manning, co-founder of Reading Room, will speak at the Gov 2.0 Canberra lunch in Parliament House, 13 July 2011:

Over the last 15 years, Margaret has grown Reading Room into an award winning consultancy. Reading Room was recognised as the UK’s top digital agency (Design Week Top 100 2010) and a global top ten digital agency (Interactive Media Awards) working with clients such as G4S, Skoda, Philips Healthcare ASEAN and UNHCR.

July's Gov 2.0 Canberra lunch will feature a presentation by Margaret Manning, global CEO and co-founder of Reading Room, a digital communications agency with offices in London, Manchester, Australia and Singapore.

Margaret will be speaking about what comes beyond social media.

Margaret is a visionary in championing the power of the internet from its birth. As a renowned digital thought leader, Margaret is a highly regarded keynote speaker at international events on the future of digital strategy and social media. Margaret’s philosophy is to stimulate thinking on the communication benefits of the Internet, focussing on the web as a “channel for business” through the creative use for technology, design and content, with the challenge for global brands to integrate Local, Social and Mobile elements.

Margaret frequently features in industry and national press including The Sunday Times, Real Business and Growing Business, and has been interviewed on the BBC. She is an international Entrepreneur of the Year (Stevie Women in Business Awards) and was recently sponsored by the Singapore government to host a series of business clinics as part of a mentoring program for government backed entrepreneurs.

Thanks again to Minister Gary Gray, Australia's Special Minister of State, for hosting the event at Parliament House. ...
