Aboriginal Engagement for the International Association of Public Participation

Published on

The International Association of Public Practitioners or IAP2 invited me (Bob Joseph) to do a talk on the topic of "Aboriginal Engagement" at a recent AGM here in Vancouver, BC. We did a survey ahead of the meeting and came up with the topics for the talk.

Topics included: how to engage in a respectful, effective, and successful way, how to build organizational commitment for Aboriginal consultation and engagement, hints and tips for meetings, dealing with difficult meetings and much more...

This is the presentation I shared with them. I also took this slide show and added an audio recording to create as slide cast. Please note I edited out longer questions to keep the video to under 30 minutes. Enjoy and be sure to share.
