Less than a month to go until we open our doors and welcome the community into our home – well it’s actually an office but you get the picture.
This year the iiNet Open Day is taking place on October 17 at our Perth headquarters in Subiaco.
Open Day is an ii tradition. It’s been happening for the better half of the last 10 years and is a favourite of staff and community alike. Curious folk who pop in to say hello will have the option of attending seminars, workshops, tours or all of the above. You can also grab a coffee from the Bean Talkin’ van and yes, before you ask, the famous iiNet goodie bags will be making an appearance and let’s just say these won’t disappoint.
But, it’s not just about the goodie bags…
Back due to popular demand we’ve doubled (yes, you read that right!) the amount of workshops available at this year’s Open Day. The ever-popular Social Media 101 is back again and is joined by a plethora of other hot topics including the NBN, troubleshooting, privacy and online safety. There are limited spots available for these workshops so book your spot here.
Our open seminars have had a bit of a refresh this year and thanks to some awesome technology a couple will be streamed live on iiNet’s Freezone.
This year, you’ll be able to hear iiNet CEO Michael Malone chat about how iiNet has grown from a company which started in his parents’ garage to a $1 billion company with close to one million customers. Managing Director of Socialite Media, Tenille Bentley, will also share her thoughts on the Social Media landscape and how businesses can protect their brand.
The hot topic of the NBN will be taking centre stage with the opportunity to submit questions via social media in the lead up to the day.
Is there something about the National Broadband Network (NBN) that you can’t quite get your head around? Here’s your chance to ask! Just use the hashtag #iiNBN to ask your question – we’ll be selecting the most popular questions to be answered by our experts. Not a fan of the hashtag? Questions can also be emailed to email@example.com.
We’re a super friendly bunch and love to show off where we spend our days. Through the tours you’ll be able to check out our break out areas (including pool/ping-pong tables, gaming consoles and comfy couches), the popular hot or not wall, ultra-cool Network Operations Center (NOC) and wave hello to the lovely people who answer your queries.
We’re going National!
Even if you’re based outside of Perth, we have a bunch of ways you can take part.
Follow us on social media through Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or LinkedIn - and look out for the hashtag #iiOpenDay – for more information on how to win goodie bags, submit questions and watch the live streams.
We’ll also be uploading footage and presentations online after the event via Freezone
It helps if you register before the day via our online page.
Not sure if you can make it? Not a problem – for the first time ever, we’re offering on-the-spot registration for those who want to pop over on their lunch break. We’re located just a short walk from the Subiaco train station.
There’s even a Facebook Event so you can RSVP to let us know you’re coming or invite your friends.
Can’t wait to see you there!
