Keep on Engaging: Keeping it Human in COVID-19

Join IAP2 Australasia for an online Q&A-style conversation with practical information on how you can keep engaging in the COVID-19 environment.

The panel will share tips and insights on:

  • Community sentiment right now and what people are thinking and feeling.
  • How to work with people with heightened anxiety.
  • Social distancing versus social isolation - how are people coping?
  • What do we say once we reach our audience?
  • Adjusting the messaging, tone and language.
  • What about the timing, do we need to adjust?
  • Breaking down barriers and building trust in communities, we are in this together!
  • The role of engagers in connecting communities.

There will be opportunities for participants to ask questions during this live webinar, which will be recorded for those who can’t join us in the moment.
