Lunch & Learn Presentations – WA Water Corporation 2019
We had the pleasure of having Kayelene Kerr present to our people at our Leederville and Balcatta Water Corporation offices all last week on Digital Wellness and Cyber Safety for Kids. Her presentations were part of our cyber awareness week and I am still receiving such positive feedback and glowing reviews from colleagues about her outstanding workshops and engaging content.
These workshops are invaluable to any parents and guardians and indeed even adults without children under their care. I was also very impressed with Kayelene’s professionalism; working hard to split a 2.5 hour workshop into two 1 hour sessions to suit the way our business works. In the Digital Wellness workshop, Kayelene informs us of the effect that screen time has on our children’s sleep, learning, development and mental health. There are some real eye opening facts, but also strategies are taught on how we can have more healthy conversations with our children about the amount of time that they spend on apps on their mobile devices, playing video games, and chatting with their friends. As a father myself, I have already implemented many of the strategies that Kayelene presented, with much success thus far.
In the Cyber Safety workshop, Kayelene allows us to explore the various apps that our children have access to, what they are for, and how they interact on them. We also learn about the threats that some of these can pose, particularly around online predators. However, it was extremely shocking to learn how easy it is for young children and adolescents to access pornography and illegal content.
One underlying key message from these workshops is that we as adults are the best role models, and children will certainly mirror our own behaviours, particularly when using devices. Kayelene presented this information extremely clearly and left many of our people simply wanting more information. There were swarms of people around her at the end of every session wanting to ask question after question, so we will definitely be bringing Kayelene back to Water Corporation soon to engage with our people again.
Over the week, Kayelene presented 5 separate times, and came back on Friday to participate in an expert panel discussion. Her professionalism during the week was second to none and she was more than willing to answer questions outside of presentation times and talk with people. Kayelene and certainly WACSS is welcome back any time at Water Corporation. You have been amazing.

Cyber Safety – Parent Workshop
“Kayelene came out to our Primary School this evening to deliver a workshop on Cyber Safety. OH MY GOD! What an eye opener, even for someone as tech savvy as me. She was brilliant, the audience was captivated. There was so much chatter afterwards about how amazing it was and how gobsmacked everyone was at the dangers lurking out there. Thank you so much for an amazing presentation Kayelene, but thank you also for not just showing us the problem but also giving us solutions and tangible ways to protect our children and mitigate the risk. You are doing an amazing job. Don’t ever stop!”
