Better Together training: Principles of Engagement May 2017
Wed. 10 May 2017, 8:45 am – 1:00 pm ACST
A one off intensive workshop on the Better Together 'Principles of Engagement' training is offered FREE to government employees only as part of the Government's commitment to ensure that we have a public service that has the skills to undertake high-quality engagement processes.
Learn how you can apply the Better Together principles in your work. The sessions also offer the chance to learn more about the State Government's Reforming Democracy policy and maximising public value. The workshop will support you to improve engagement in your workplace, creating a responsive and open public service that prides itself on real engagement, not just consultation.
This workshop will provide you with practical tools and tips you can take back to your workplace with renewed enthusiasm and inspiration for engaging your communities.
