Register now: Media and Communications Forum 16 Oct

Notice Board

Wednesday, 4 October 2017

Final program released

What does it take to inspire action?

How can councils cut through the innovative ideas, the ‘calls-to-action’, the fake news and information, and create real change?

This year’s Media and Communications Forum will delve into what it means to develop campaigns that deliver real change and the actions we seek.

Hear case studies from the likes of the executive producer of the ABC’s acclaimed War On Waste, the editorial director of News Corp's Australian Regional Media and the co-founder of Garage Sale Trail.

This forum is a must for council communications and media staff, and is - as always - open to anyone interested in the ever-evolving world of strategic communications.

Registrations for this event are separate to the main Annual Conference – head here to register and check out the full program.
