MARCH WEBINAR: Favorite Conference Presentations – Tues, March 11, 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern

There were so many great presentations at the Portland Conference last September, and in March, you’ll have a chance to hear from two presenters whose sessions proved to be extremely popular among the Conference-goers. If you weren’t able to get to the Conference in person, this is a great opportunity to catch up! Triangles make for exciting reading, whether in a bodice-ripping novel or a juicy political scandal, but how do they work into public engagement?

Amy Hubbard, one of Australia’s most recognized stakeholder engagement consultants, will tell us about the  Engagement Triangle, a tool to help identify the desired outcomes of community engagement based on the overarching objectives of informing decisions, building capacity and strengthening relationships. You’ll get a chance to see how this spatial tool translates into your own projects.

And scientific and technical explanations may be a necessary part of conveying needed information to the public (#6 on the IAP2 Core Values), but if the language is incomprehensible or just plain dull, how will people be properly informed?

Kalin Schmoldt of JLA Public Involvement will discuss how to get around the limitations of the human brain to convey difficult technical concepts, and sometimes you just have to go low-tech to get the point across.
