The Information Without Borders Conference committee is excited to announce that Adrian Cloete, manager of the Outreach and Community Enablement team for the Government of Canada’s Information Management policy centre at the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS), will be speaking at the 2017 conference.
After careers as a journalist and integrated marketing communications director in South Africa, the U.S. and Canada, Adrian Cloete is a grateful federal public servant who proudly serves the public and public servants through business-driven, values-based and policy-compliant engagement initiatives.
Adrian manages the Outreach and Community Enablement team for the Government of Canada’s Information Management policy centre at the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) where he strives for greater collaboration across all sectors of society.
Previously, he was a catalyst for pioneering crowd-sourcing initiatives on Social finance and safer workplaces for youth. Last September, Adrian defended his thesis on the personal use of the Internet in the workplace, studying under Prof. Lorna Heaton at l’Université de Montréal. He earned a master’s degree from Columbia University and a bachelor’s from Trinity College, University of Toronto.
Adrian has presented at conferences focused on new media, technology and society, plus andragogy, and he was thrilled to get an invitation to join the interdisciplinary discussions at this Information Without Borders conference. While in Halifax, he is seeking creative problem-solving students to join TBS for a dynamic summer in our nation’s capital.
