      • People want to be heard
      • Do more with less, faster, broader (etc)
    • 19. Digital engagement = public service use of social media to discuss ideas with customers & partners, deliver information and services, or prompt action
    • 20. Just another channel… but a two-way channel. With new benefits and risks… which puts more control in the hands of individuals, rather than organisations
