Workshop: Using social marketing principles to make real change
13 - 14 August, 9am - 5pm
The world is shifting to one in which communications can help change behaviour for the benefit of individuals, the environment, and society. How prepared are you to implement the principles of social marketing in your day-to-day work?
Join us for a 1- or 2-day course, where you’ll learn how to plan for and achieve behaviour change objectives. Steve Menzies, of Flinch Marketing — the behaviour change experts — will lead you through social marketing 101 and help you to find the practical ways you can affect positive change by shaping your audience’s behaviour.
Our 2-day course will provide you with the opportunity to sit a short exam. Upon successful completion of the exam you will become accredited in social marketing through Griffith University in Brisbane.

Event: Being heard when people aren't listening
22 August, from 5.30pm

Being heard is a challenge for most professional communicators— and we are trained in the art of language and engagement. It can be nearly impossible for those from under-represented communities to be heard when people aren't listening— or simply don't want to listen.
There are those who create signal through noise to challenge norms— to stand up and be heard. They are champions of under-represented communities, working to bring an authentic voice to issues that impact them, as well as others like them.
What can we learn from them? More importantly, how can we, as professional communicators, help create the space needed for others to be heard— without speaking for them?
Come along to this very special IABC Wellington panel discussion, hosted by former TVNZ journalist Arrun Soma.
The event will take place at Biz Dojo on Tory Street, 5:30pm on 22 August.
- Lauren Wilkerson— chair of the APAC Pride board for Mercer, a global financial instruments powerhouse.
- Sue McLean— fearless champion for women in Aotearoa's tech and energy sector.
- Alexander Kachfi (Kelly Fornia)—producer and performer who has helped bring Wellington's drag scene to national prominence
