Defining your future: not being forced into a job & life you resent
The intention of this workshop/seminar is to encourage and inspire Kiwi youth to make use of the tools, services, sites and skills that currently many seem to have in excess! Web 2.0 had its birth as these kids were being born, and much like teenager lesson, the learning's we have in social media are often obtain from a basis of trial and error largely. We realise as "digital natives", today's youth know the most about many of these current technologies we have available, but are also the least likely to take the initiative to utilise them to showcase the vast potential.
We want to excite these kids to the potential and power of the "time wasting" tools they currently use already and introduce them to some very successful and popular brands, bands & people that have done so before. Discussing around the six topic headers outlined, we want to touch on some key lessons and we wanted to finish the arvo off with some entertainment and performances...
TOPIC HEADERS: 1. Whats the point?? 2. Searching for your purpose 3. New World Order 4. Exploring what social media & the net means for the working world 5. If you love what you do, you never have to "go to work" again 6. Where to next?

CALL FOR FURTHER SPEAKERS
We want to inspire, inform & excite young people who will be soon be entering universities, the workforce or maybe the job seekers /unemployment demographic sector of our communities.. We hope they can find ways to make the work world work for them...
We know social media & web 2.0 technologies enable anyone of us to have the tools & technologies already at our fingertips and with them have the potential to achieve any kind of aspiration we've yet come across...
There are already so many talented, achieved, respected & successful people from various walks of life that have managed to work out how to find ways to live life doing the things they love every day & get paid to do it... Many of these have used social media to help them achieve this, from the likes of the gelato dreams Giapo has made a reality, to the success & fun of the likes of Jermaine Leef, formerly from C4 more recently embracing the lead role as JGeek & the Geeks... We want to impress & entertain this group of youths and inspire them to live out their dreams...
