Community & Stakeholder Engagement Summit 2019

Trust. You need it to deliver services. Your department needs it to implement policy. But how do you build it? How can you grow it?

By engaging the community and affiliated stakeholders. By listening to their diverse perspectives and empowering them to get involved in decisions through transparency, inclusivity and collaboration.

The Community Stakeholder Engagement Summit 2019 is about equipping passionate community engagement officers with new and improved skills to deal with the changing nature of community involvement in the decision-making process.
