Workshop A: How communication & engagement can increase regulatory reach & impact
Monday 26th February 2018, 5.00pm – 8.00pm

As a modern regulator, EPA Victoria is faced with the challenge of driving change beyond those that can be reached directly. Over the past few years, EPA has explored the importance of leveraging through strong communication and engagement and has recently restructured these critical business functions to reinvent them as regulatory tools in their own right.

The workshop will take attendees through a number of scenarios/live topics to address the following questions:

  • Who is my authorising environment and what is important to them
  • Who is my target audience and what motivates them
  • What is the behaviour/choice/practice I am trying to influence
  • How can I efficiently speak to them and what is their language
  • How do I know I am making a difference

What will you take away by attending?

  • Practical steps to help analyse your operating environment and identify points of leverage
  • Simple models to support decision making about which tools and approaches are relevant for specific situations and audiences
  • Practical case study work to show the end to end considerations
