Testimonials

“It was great to see colleagues from across the Queensland Government so engaged at the EngageTech QLD event. It was a chance to encourage and support staff looking to innovate – and sharing lessons and experiences is key. I know everyone will be looking forward to seeing the report and hearing everyone’s ideas.”

– Anne Moffat, Executive Director of State Services QLD Department of Premier and Cabinet

“Today’s been a great way to get an overview of the various methodologies for engaging with community and stakeholders.”

– Chloe Beevers, Local Government NSW

“I think one of the most important things I’ve learnt today is how many really good tools there are for social media engagement with the community.”

– Stuart Cohen, Office of Environment & Heritage

“EngageTech was very different type of event to what we’re used to sponsoring and it really worked. It was great to see our clients sharing their lessons with others and as a sponsor we got to really interact with delegates rather than be on the outskirts looking in.”

– Jess Whittaker Head of Digital at iSentia

“It’s good that we did lots of workshops where you are sharing ideas with people and it gives you a practical platform, a practical understanding of the materials.”

– Cal Gray, Department of Premier & Cabinet

“It was great to benefit from such a broad range of experience that people have had across different organisations.”

– Alexis Starkey, Department of Planning & Infrastructure

“It’s not just talking heads. It’s very engaging, very participatory, lots of round tables. You’re constantly meeting new people and having new discussions.”

– Alex Manchester, OBS
