UK Public Sector Digital Engagement Day: Glasgow

Dugald Stewart Monument on Calton Hill in Edinburgh - Scotland

6 December | 11am – 3.45pm

Join us at The Lighthouse, Gallery 4, 11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow, G1 3NU.

With many public sector organisations citing the need to “do more with less” or even “more with nothing” as their biggest challenge, teams continue to be under pressure to streamline their services and processes and save money. But how far can that take them? What about bringing new money into organizations?

The average income target for a public sector comms team is £75k. That’s significant, and for some, unrealistic, particularly given the lack of resources to deliver it. Does your team have the skills and tools it needs?

If your communications team has an ambitious income target and you need to help your organisation save money and work more efficiently, join us for this free Digital Engagement Day on 6 December in Glasgow to learn how digital communications can help.

Alongside other communicators and digital transformation specialists, you’ll learn how improving the way you engage residents, businesses and other target audiences can increase the take-up of your programs and services, and dramatically change your team’s ability to help balance the books.

The event will address:

  • Challenges and opportunities for communicators
  • Case studies from across the public sector
  • Income-generation and cost-saving strategies

This event is a great opportunity to share your experience and make some new professional contacts from the Scottish public sector and elsewhere in the UK.
