    What is the People Experience? It starts the moment you identify you have a vacancy and you are determining your recruitment strategy. The language used, the values that are portrayed – are they reflective of the organisational culture you are trying to foster?

    This conference program will help you to better understand the narrative of your organisation and have you thinking differently about some of the complex problems that People and Culture practitioners face on a daily basis.

    Learn how to equip yourself with the right data to make informed decisions and take your organisation from a place of managing for outcomes, to monitoring for impact. Your people are your most valuable asset, and with the right people experience, you will be able to leverage opportunities and deliver the best outcomes for your community. 

    All local government People and Culture professionals are encouraged to attend.

    We will make every endeavour to proceed with a face to face event, however should government restrictions dictate this is no longer possible, the event will be held virtually.

    The Plain English movement was designed to cut through the confusing legalese of important documents in an effort to create clear and coherent communication using common, everyday language that is easily understood by the reader. Incorporating Plain English principles into your work will result in less writing time, shorter documents and enhanced readability.

    Even if your role doesn’t require a lot of writing, how you come across is crucial to your credibility. The ability to write clearly, precisely, powerfully and persuasively is a key skill that enables you to summarise and present ideas, build relationships and gain commitment to action. It can also demonstrate your knowledge, confidence and professionalism.

    This course consists of two 2-hour Zoom sessions as well as video content and exercises prior to the live virtual classroom sessions.
