Event description

Description

It's time for 2019's Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland User Group!

Our Citizen Space user groups provide an excellent opportunity to share insight and best practice for anyone who works in public/stakeholder engagement. Attendance is free and lunch is provided.

User Groups are always a great opportunity to hear what others in your field are up to. Whether you've been before or are new to user groups, we’d love to see you there.

Belfast City Council are kindly hosting this year's user group which will take place on Thursday 21st November 2019 at 9 Adelaide Street in Belfast.


Who is the user group for?

Anyone using Citizen Space.

Generally most organisations send one or two people but please get in touch via support@delib.net if you'd like to bring more people. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.


What should I expect?

Expect talks on all things consultation and digital engagement and some workshop-type activities, along the lines of the following:

• An opportunity to meet fellow Citizen Space users from across local and central government

• Show-and-tell of recent or upcoming engagement exercises by current users, reviewing the processes and challenges of how you work

• An update from Delib, including an overview of recent changes to the product

• Digital surgery on any other questions/topics requested. Let us know if there's a particular topic or feature you'd like to discuss or have explained.

Coffee and tea will be available from 9.45 before the event kicks off at 10.00.

A light lunch will be provided between 12.30 - 1.30 so please let us know if you have any dietary requirements when booking your ticket.

This is our third Citizen Space User Group to be held in Northern Ireland. If you're not sure what to expect, check out these learnings from our User Group in Bangor last year.


We need you!

These sessions work best with real examples so we encourage individuals from attending organisations to give a talk. If you're interested in sharing your experiences with online consultation, please email support@delib.net.

At previous user groups there have been talks on topics like building a consultation process that ensures good quality, how to structure analysis, digital transformation, and survey promotion; we've also had reports of good consultations (and bad ones) and what has been learnt from them, and much much more!
