Staying Connected: Effective Online Engagement

Staying Connected: Effective Online Engagement

Author: RobertsDay

These are uncertain times. While public health must be our number one priority in the midst of this pandemic, it’s vital that we continue to keep local communities engaged in the strategic projects that will drive our economic and cultural recovery.

To do this RobertsDay is adapting the way we work and how we engage to keep critical projects moving. We’re rethinking how engagement should operate in a ‘fully online’ environment and developing new tools and strategies to ensure this can be just as successful as a ‘real’ workshop.

New technology can be daunting at the best of times. With so many different online engagement platforms available, it can be overwhelming to know where to start and what tools are best suited to particular projects. 

We hope this guide helps to ease this transition and make your virtual engagement a success. While challenging, adapting to COVID-19 is an opportunity to innovate and revolutionise the way we engage with our community and stakeholders both now and in the future.
