How will digital and traditional engagement techniques work together in the future and how can local government practitioners maximise their effectiveness?
The last few months have seen big shifts in the way we all live our lives. Social distancing requirements have forced us to re-think how to continue engaging with local communities on the projects and policies that affect them.
Elton Consulting is hosting a 60-minute ‘lunch and learn’ webinar to discuss three recent case studies from across the nation. We will share our learnings from when planned face-to-face engagement was disrupted by global events and delivered online. This session will give you confidence to plan and deliver a successful mix of face-to-face and digital engagement techniques, ensuring you and your team are set up for success with a strategic and thoughtful approach.
Wednesday 29 July 2020, 1:30-2:30pm AEST.
