Your host: Katherine Morrell & Sophie Drew
- Do you ever feel like everyone in Canberra works for the government but you?
- No idea what a MOG is?
- Are you confused by all those TLAs?
We promise you, you’re not alone. IABC Canberra members come from all sorts of industries, including non-government sectors
It can sometimes be a bit hard for non-government communication professionals in Canberra to meet each other. We often work in small teams, or may be the only communications professional in our organisation. That’s why IABC Canberra is holding a non-government Chat ‘Em. So whether you work in a private company, in not-for-profit, at an industry association or as a consultant, this meet-up is for you.
The structure is quite fluid but some topics we may cover include: What are the unique challenges faced by non-government communications professionals? What sort of events would you like to attend? What are your tips for thriving in a largely government town? How on earth do you get onto a government panel? Just to name a few.
What is Chat ‘Em?
Chat ’Em is an informal catch up for Canberra communication professionals. Each Chat ‘Em focuses on a different aspect of communications, for example digital campaigns, non-government communications or strategy.
Like the name suggests, it’s Chatham House Rules, so please feel free to bring any concerns or problems that you’ve encountered and we can workshop them with the group.
