During 2012, Becky Hirst Consulting was contracted by the City of Marion to provide project management services as part of the Making Marion project.  The project was designed to find out what residents, businesses and community groups wanted the city to look like in 2040. Our work included –

  • Developing a comprehensive stakeholder engagement strategy;
  • Preparing a social media and online engagement plan;
  • Planning and facilitating a number of staff workshops to plan engagement activity;
  • Facilitating Elected Member forums throughout the process;
  • Planning and facilitating innovative engagement activity with local residents, local business, and young people;
  • Leveraging information from other recent engagement activity;
  • Planning and facilitation of a whole-of-staff big breakfast, including a world-café discussion with 300 people
  • Working with Elected Members to collate hundreds of community responses to shape the Community Plan content
