Late last year, we hosted our second
Adobe Government Assembly, which brought together over 500 attendees and speakers to discuss innovative ways to engage with citizens more efficiently.
Among the sessions was one focused on maximizing your web presence. It was moderated by our own Loni Kao Stark, and included some great speakers:
Selene Dalecky, Program Manager, Federal Digital System, Government Printing Office
Ronnie Levine, Chief Information Officer, Bureau of Land Management, Department of the Interior
Steven Webster, Director of Technology & Experience Innovation, Adobe
Andrew Wilson, Web and New Media Strategist, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
We caught footage of Loni talking with each of the speakers directly after the session and encourage you to take a look at the result:
You can also check out an Adobe Connect recording of the entire session
here, or listen to a podcast of the same here.
