Hear from CEOs and other technical specialists about what they would recommend and what they have experienced. This Forum will broaden your understanding of Queensland local government, the scope and breadth of activity, the responsibilities of CEOs and how to balance the varied needs of stakeholders: above, below and external.

    • 29 May 2019
    • 12:00 - 16:00

    Join engagement specialist Matthew Gordon, CEO of OurSay for this half day workshop, and two subsequent webinars.

    The Community Engagement forum is based on a cutting-edge curriculum built on OurSay’s unique and industry-backed format and approach. This practical programme is designed to build a culture of excellence and a commitment with internal change agents who need to translate their council’s community engagement policy, framework and standardised approach into a daily reality. OurSay’s methodology and approach for the programme is founded on capacity building using both “co-design” and “train-the-trainer” philosophies. We believe the reflection of participants throughout the programme are ideal inputs for hardcoding a council’s commitment to public participation. This session focuses on changing mindsets, skillsets and building the knowledge base to turn any council into an "engaging council"….

    Places are limited.

These professionals have been selected for their experience and diversity; offering different perspectives on the role of CEO and providing role models to suit different personalities and approaches.
