Meagan Lawson – Corporate Affairs Manager, NPS MedicineWise and Kelly Williams – Advocacy Campaigns Manager, Cancer Council NSW
Meagan and Kelly first presented this session at Unite 4 Change in May 2012. Due to the positive feedback we received at the event, we decided to provide our CanAct Community with another opportunity to benefit from their experience and insights when it comes to campaign planning. Using real case studies, we will chat about how change happens and look at the typical stages in taking an issue and developing a campaign to achieve your goals. This conversation is highly interactive providing you with an opportunity to practise new skills and have any of those burning questions about campaigning answered!
