Why the NBN broke the election stalemate – AMP Social Media Cafe 15 September

Yes, it’s the internet…but not as usual.


If the National Broadband Network could break Australia’s election stalemate, why is it such a big deal? ( see great article on this at http://paulwallbank.com/2010/09/10/how-broadband-won-the-australian-election/) What does fast broadband mean to you and to the average investor, business manager and citizen?


At the next AMP Social Media café, Paul Wallbank will help business decision-makers understand how “always on”, super-fast and super cheap broadband connectivity on a  national scale isn’t just more of the same. It lowers the barriers to entry – for EVERYONE! 


It’s a quantum shift and it can be a game-changer. But as with all new opportunities, it also brings disruptions and threats. On which side of the game do you want to be?  


Paul will work with the audience to brainstorm scenarios in a highly interactive, provocative and entertaining look at our rapidly changing digital society.
