(Managing Director & Speaker)
Tricia Munn has just one goal. To protect school aged children, families and adults from the widespread dangers that exist on social media networks. Through personal experience, years of diligent research and investigation, Tricia has identified critical problems in the security functions provided on all major social media platforms. Bullies, predators and harassment have flourished on social media and Tricia has discovered that poorly understood security settings are enabling the worst forms of online behaviour. Not satisfied to have simply discovered the depth of the problem, Tricia has worked tirelessly to develop a comprehensive solution to very harmful anti-social behaviour online. Tricia’s unique solution has been embraced by schools around Australia and, for the very first time, is now available to every family through a series of low cost, time-efficient online courses. Tricia’s dream is to help every family keep their children safe on social media while they are still able to enjoy the tremendous relationships to be had online.
