Kismet Forward was engaged in 2011-2012 to plan and undertake the extensive 3-stage community and stakeholder engagement associated with the development of Victoria’s first Regional Growth Plan, for the G21 Region. The project was managed by Jen and delivered in partnership with Firelight Consulting and Jane McQueenie.
This work led to Kismet Forward being asked to plan and implement stakeholder engagement for the ground-breaking Regional Growth Implementation Plan for the G21 region.
Due to the success of the G21 RGP engagement process, the then Department of Planning and Community Development engaged Kismet Forward and Firelight Consulting to provide engagement advice to 7 regional growth planning teams across Victoria in 2012. This involved an audit of RGP Engagement Plans, and coaching to maximise their effectiveness.
