5/14/2018
More
In the world of communication, there’s one rivalry bigger than them all: internal vs external communication. The common belief is that external is superior simply because it’s what you use to communicate with your audience. But something we often forget is the crucial role internal plays. It may not be pleasing your audience, and instead gratifying your staff. This week we talk with Kate Powl, Communications Manager at Data61. As a young agency attached to the CSIRO, Kate’s role has been...

InTransition 89: How local governments can market themselves, with Shannah Hayley

3/19/2018
More
What do you do when a reality TV show takes the name of your town and uses it in a not-so savoury comment? Steer into the mess and use it as free publicity (and make the most of a Taylor Swift.gif). Shannah Hayley, Director of Marketing and Community Engagement for the city of Plano, TX, found this tactic useful in 2016 when a cast member of the Real Housewives of Dallas compared the city to an uncomfortable conversation. Knowing all eyes were on her, she used the opportunity to raise...

2/19/2018
More
In part 1 of our interview with Daryl Karp, Director of the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House (MoAD) we explore the idea of selling an offline experience online.

MoAD has used this resurgence in the...
