Speaker Announcement - Paul and Carly Taylor - Mind Body Brain Performance Institute

As community engagement professionals, we need to look after ourselves to ensure we are in peak shape!

As community engagement professionals, we need to look after ourselves to ensure we are in peak shape to do what is often a demanding job. In what will be one of the conference highlights, we are excited to announce that Paul and Carly Taylor from Mind Body Brain Performance institute will be joining us on the first day of the conference. Carly will focus on giving us tools to better relate, understand, consult, and engage with our colleagues and the community, while Paul will give us strategies on how we can protect our energy to perform better and deliver better outcomes for the communities we serve.

Paul has an extensive background in health and fitness, leadership, management and dealing with high pressure situations in the British Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm, while Carly is a Japanese psychologist coach with over 10 years’ experience in coaching on behaviour change.

We are pleased to announce that Consultation Manager and Social Pinpoint have joined GHD and Comacon Pty. Ltd. as sponsors for the 2021 National Community Engagement for Infrastructure Forum (NCEIF), including the upcoming breakfast webinar in December.

The digital landscape is constantly changing, and the pace of change is also increasing. MySite CCO, James Moore, will chair a discussion with Colin Goudie, MySite CTO on digital trends and advancements that will influence community engagement over the years to come. Guest speaker, Matt Ensor from Beca AI, will close out the session by discussing Beca’s development of an AI-powered conversational agent named Tala to engage people in diverse communities who would traditionally not take part in public consultation.

NCEIF to move to 6/7 October. We remain optimistic that we will be able to meet in person and bring you the best NCEIF yet!
