Influencing Government direction from outside the Canberra bubble

Join us for this timely discussion at the National Portrait Gallery on Wednesday 13 March 2019.

In recent years Government has increasingly looked to industry to help lay the foundations for regulatory and social change. Looking towards the Federal Election 2019, this presentation examines the key regulatory battlegrounds which offer industry opportunities to influence policy outcomes and position their brands as social and policy thought leaders, and how it may play out for industry and Government communicators.

Critical communication for community engagement.

Who do you trust?

Join us for a special collaboration between IABC Canberra and the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2). IAP2 Australasia is committed to advancing the practice of community and stakeholder engagement through education, advocacy and building partnerships.

Public trust levels of governments and large corporations have never been lower. In this era of ‘fake news’, how do you communicate authentically with the public and drive understanding and acceptance of new policies and programs?

Hear from expert community engagement practitioner of over 20 years, Lucy Cole-Edelstein from RPS as she shares her experiences navigating the fine line between communication, consultation and client outcomes. Lucy will discuss IAP2’s Public Participation Spectrum and share her insights from recent community engagement programs including the NSW Government’s controversial Wild Brumby Management Plan and the innovative ACT Government  approach through deliberative democracy on Housing Choices.

Join us for this special collaboration between IABC Canberra and the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2). IAP2 Australasia is committed to advancing the practice of community and stakeholder engagement through education, advocacy and building partnerships.

Lucy’s presentation is brought to you courtesy of our event sponsor RPS – specialists delivering community and stakeholder engagement to support infrastructure planning and assessment.
