Why this event?

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.

This is the aim of Community and Stakeholder Engagement for Government 2019. To foster positive public perception of government projects and enable long-term success of services and policies by building engaged communities and stakeholders. It will bring together all tiers of government to deliver interactive case-studies, round-tables and workshops that will enable you to enhance your organisation’s engagement capabilities.

Now in its third year, this event has evolved to focus on the key themes of transparency, inclusivity, collaboration and trust to drive engagement results. This is your opportunity to hear
from the front runners in Australian engagement.
