    With the advent of smart-phone technology and social media we live in an era of transparency and accountability, the likes of never seen before. In today’s world, citizens demand the right to be involved in the decision-making process of matters that affect them. With technology and social media in-hand this has lead to a proliferation of misinformation and fake news, creating outrage, sometimes artificially, in otherwise un-engaged communities. This webinar provides public organisations with the tools to identify, manage and leverage community outrage, reducing the risk in communication exchanges and ensuring that correct information is available.

    Learning Objectives

    • Acknowledge that there will be outrage in community engagement processes.
    • Identify strategies for dealing with such outrage. The outrage may be genuine or created by others for their own purposes.
    • Be better equipped to deal with such matters, providing them with the confidence to soldier-on rather than abandon the engagement.

    Who should attend?

    Community engagement practitioners, managers of community engagement practitioners, communications professionals, decision makers, and anybody with an interest in community engagement.

    Do you fear using social media in your organisation? Instead of thinking about all of the things that could go wrong, many of which can be easily mitigated, why not consider the opportunities that ONLY social media offers your organisation (reach and cost are just two examples). In this webinar we show you how to prevent the social media train wrecks that we have all heard about. This webinar will help and support you turning social media from something feared into a great opportunity to positively cement your place and reputation in your community.

    Learning Objectives

    • Engage hard-to-reach groups and specific demographics with tailored campaigns and communicate with the masses
    • Reach more people in an hour than a traditional method could achieve in a week, and for a fraction of the costs.
    • Learn how to minimise and mitigate risks, leading to improved uptake and outcomes.

    Who should attend?

    Community engagement practitioners, managers of community engagement practitioners, communications professionals, decision makers, and anybody with an interest in community engagement.
