Workshop 10B: Communication and Engagement Techniques with Media and with Project Stakeholders

The waterpower industry is seeking to “up its game” in the public affairs arena. In this workshop, you’ll gain specific techniques and strategies for how to effectively engage with media and with stakeholders, to promote your projects and your companies and to get desired results.

The workshop explores communications and waterpower through three distinct lens:
— news
— industry
— government

The workshop will kick-off with a Q&A discussion on clean energy media trends with Maxine Joselow, a reporter with the Washington Post.

Next, we will explore strategies for engaging the media with waterpower industry communicators.

And to cap off the workshop, we will host a discussion with government communications pros to learn to discover how federal agencies are messaging waterpower.
