Removing Barriers in Engagement - Melbourne Geek Night, July 2013


Published on

Many make it difficult to access information and get involved, with technology making accessing this information easier and easier, why not take advantage of it.

We'll also look at some general tips, advice and resources for lowering the barriers to getting engagement with your organisation, campaign or product.
