To foster positive public perception of government projects and enable long-term success of services and policies you need engaged stakeholders. Without buy in you'll face difficulty in rolling out new policies, and face and even tougher time in reaching success.

Now in it's third year, the Community and Stakeholder Engagement Summit 2019 brings together front runners in engagement strategies from departments around Australia. Building on from an outstanding event in 2018, the focus shifts this year to focus deeply on transparency, inclusivity, collaboration and trust, and how these factors interplay to drive engagement.
