We talk Community Engagement at flagship conference for Councils

22 NOV 2018

Approximately 200 delegates are set to attend the Cambridgeshire Councils Conference on Friday 23rd November – including Hayley Williams from Keystone Marketing. 


Sponsored by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and Cambridgeshire County Council, the full day event includes addresses from the Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire County Council, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Association of Local Councils and the Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, James Palmer, who will be talking about his ambitions for our rural villages and market towns. 


Councillors and Clerks from local councils, District and County Councillors and representatives from organisations that work with and support local councils across Cambridgeshire are all ready to come together to learn, network and share best practice.

Keystone Marketing were asked to run a conference breakout on Community Engagement based on their growing work with community centric organisations; including community engagement campaigns for neighbourhoods plan, high impact communications for membership bodies and community led events and initiatives.  

In an hour long workshop that runs twice on the day, Managing Director of Keystone Marketing Hayley Williams will showcase illustrative examples of varying types of communities that require engagement, and uncover the challenges and opportunities that need to be considered. Demonstrating how crucial community engagement is for Council and community group representatives, the Community Engagement workshop has been very popular, with near enough half the event's total delegates due to sit in on the Keystone led breakout.

Nine break out workshops in total run throughout the day, including discussions on the role of Masterplans Neighbourhood Plans, the emergence of renewable energy, capacity and collaboration as well as housing and transport. There will also be a marketplace of stalls offering useful information and services to local Councils; including a stand from Keystone Marketing.

The event discussions will be posted live on Twitter during the event, using the hashtag #CambsParishes – follow the conversation online here
