South Australians living, working or learning interstate and abroad are set to be connected through a new network, launched by Brand South Australia this week.
Bringing together South Australian expats, the Hello From SA network is content-driven, creating an informed, engaged and positive network for South Australians all around the world.
This content will encourage expats to become advocates for SA by maintaining or deepening their connection with the state.
“No matter where you are in the world, you’ll find fellow South Australians, and wherever they end up they take with them a connection to the state,” says Brand South Australia executive chairman Peter Joy.
“There are so many talented and inspiring South Australians out there achieving great things and we want them to re-engage with our state. SA has a lot to offer in terms of business and investment opportunities, and we want our expats to be aware of this, and perhaps even consider SA as a place worth returning to for career and lifestyle opportunities.”
Central to the network is the Hello From SA website www.hellofromsa.com.au, LinkedIn page, (@Hello From SA) and Facebook page (@HelloFromSA).
Through these platforms, SA expats can stay up to date with the latest news, business opportunities and industry insights from around SA, read in-depth profiles of successful South Australians and find out about the latest cultural happenings in the state.
The network also gives expats the opportunity to interact and connect with fellow South Australians all around the globe.’
All South Australians are encouraged to share Hello From SA with their family and friends living interstate and overseas.
