Online - The connected community, discovering the health, wealth, and power of neighbourhoods
The relationship between organisations and communities across the world is changing and this change is going to require a fundamental shift in behaviours from both officers in organisations and residents in communities.

International speaker and author Cormac Russell will draw on the concepts and approaches from his previous book: Rekindling Democracy: A Professional’s Guide to Working in Citizen Space and his new book which he co-authored with John McKnight, The Connected Community to spark a wide ranging discussion on how best to put communities at the centre of change. The keynote will explore four fundamental questions for creating vibrant and resilient: what can communities do that organisations cannot, what can communities do with organisations that neither can do alone, what can organisations do that communities cannot, and how can we get these competencies and strengths better aligned?
