I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for rolling out such a professional and highly polished community engagement development program.  As your facilitated program was the Council’s first step towards building the organisations capacity to engage more effectively with our internal and external stakeholders, it was approached by some with a degree of trepidation.  I can’t begin to tell you how heart warming it is to be able to move around the organisation and hear such positive accolades about the program and genuine excitement over the community engagement opportunities that await us.  

 The professionalism of the whole Engagement Plus team, your style of facilitation and overall approach to the learning and development program, particularly the manner in which you were able to clearly identify the synergies with the Council’s think-out-loud CE approach are a credit to yourself and your team.  Accordingly, please pass on our most sincere appreciation to Jess, Jess and Britney as well.  They did a great job in bringing the program and all the resources together!  

 The program has definitely been an enabler for our organisation, particularly in the aftermath of amalgamations and restructures etc.  The challenge for us now is to  harness the level of energy you have managed to create through the development program to champion the fantastic opportunities now that we are open to them which are able to present themselves. 

 We look forward to continuing to work along side you and your team in your role as Mentor over the coming months, and sharing some fantastic CE stories as they unfold.  

Kindest regards, 

Michelle Rowe (Moreton Bay Regional Council)
