From Chaos to Collaboration: Changing the Way We Communicate with the Public
Friday, December 7, 2018
Speaker: Larry Schooler, Senior Fellow, National Civic League
Picture this: Your boss tells you to plan a “town hall meeting” on a controversial topic. You find a venue, set up chairs, and get quickly overwhelmed by a standing room only crowd–and they’re angry. They may have been provoked by information (or misinformation) from social media, or even traditional media, and they’re ready to burn your team in effigy. What to do?
This session is designed to take you, and your organization, from chaos to collaboration–embracing an entirely new paradigm for public engagement. Learn how to identify stakeholders and create customized strategies for engaging them; how to facilitate difficult conversations involving competing viewpoints; how to bring an array of stakeholders to consensus; and examine cutting-edge technology for public engagement.
