Personal, organisational, cultural, demographic or geographic; engaging with the full spectrum of our communities can be a significant challenge.


“Engagement without Borders” is an inclusive engagement feast   held at Melbourne’s renowned Abbotsford Convent.


I hosted the day and guided a whole day SpeakOut! session to help participants extend their reach and attract diverse people from all corners of the community to the conversation.

Participants could forage and sample the best in innovative and successful community engagement projects and activities drawn from some of the leading lights in inclusive engagement from across Victoria.


The event involved an interactive panel session, concurrent workshop sessions and a marketplace with conversation circles to gain insights and tips about engaging our diverse communities from over 20 different practitioners.


Contributors to the event included representatives from local government, state government and community and not-for-profit organisations.
