      13:15 - 14:30 Workshop 7A - Getting in Right Relationship with People & Place
      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. 

      In this stretching and refreshing master class international speaker and author Cormac Russell, will draw on the concepts and approaches from his latest book: Rekindling Democracy: A Professional’s Guide to Working in Citizen Space to facilitate a wide ranging discussion on how best to put communities at the centre of change.

      The workshop will give you the opportunity to look at four fundamental questions for creating vibrant and resilient communities in keeping with the current strategies and policies of your Institution:
      ·         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?
      ·         How can we get these competencies and strengths better aligned?

      Cormac Russell, Managing Director of Nurture Development, will demonstrate why he believes that the traditional customer segmentation and needs analysis approaches are the way of the past, and that assets and strengths are the future.
