We also designed and delivered a full day masterclass and workshop about engagement, technology and democracy for the digital communications team at The Australian Department of The Prime Minister and Cabinet.
While working for the Ministry of Environment in British Columbia Canada, Amelia ran a full day teleconference with 160 participants across 10 locations, saving the government over $60,000.
During engagement on Australia and New Zealand (NZ) National Action Plans for Open Government, engage2 hosted regular live teleconferences and videoconferences on behalf of the NZ State Services Commission and The Australian Department of The Prime Minister and Cabinet.
engage2 run the EngageTech Forum to help governments understand the technologies available for engagement. The full day peer-to-peer learning event attracts around 100 – 120 participants.
The forum has been held in Wellington, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. The 2020 Forum will be our sixth event. The multi-format forum has been redesigned, so participants can engage virtually all day, or alongside in-person participation if it is allowed.
