Our innovative conference program encourages participants to build their own conference experience by mixing and matching presentations across the three themes of influence, engagement and leadership.

Those that are new to community and stakeholder engagement can focus on engagement and influence while more experienced practitioners can focus on leadership in engagement practice.

There is also the opportunity to learn what is working well for others from across a diversity of sectors including health, environment, consulting, state government and utilities.
