AI for Councils: Community Engagement
Wednesday 10th July 2024. 10am - 4pm.
Easily accessible venue near Falmer, Brighton, with free parking.

We are delighted to invite your council to our "AI for Councils: Community Engagement" summit on Wednesday, 10th July in Brighton.

This event is tailored specifically for local councils looking to properly understand what the power of AI, particularly Generative AI, means for them, and how it can save them time and effort when it comes to community engagement and council communications.

Our day-long AI summit will provide councils with practical insights into the ever-growing range of AI tools that can streamline internal operations and help improve internal and public council communication culture, and foster stronger community trust. We'll also demystify what Generative AI means for council information governance compliance.

This is an invaluable opportunity to learn from community engagement experts and gain vital hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies.

In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, it's crucial for councils to stay ahead of the curve. By attending this summit, you'll ensure your council is equipped with the knowledge and tools to effectively navigate the future of AI and what it means for community engagement. Don't miss this chance to transform your approach and make a lasting impact on your community.

A letter to South East Local Councils

This is NOT a drill. This new AI “thing” is NOT going away.




It absolutely does apply to your council.


In the next 12 months:

  • AI will either hold your council back...


  • AI will empower your council to engage more effectively with the community

ChatGPT (which I’m sure you’ve heard of) is only the beginning.

Be under no illusion - the power, speed and increasing ability of AI will change the way local councils work. With this change comes challenges and opportunities.

The impact of AI will be way bigger than social media was or has been. It is as significant as the arrival of computers and the internet itself.

There is no ‘undo’ button. No going back. AI will change virtually every part of our lives in the decade ahead. And it will impact how local councils work.

None of this is science fiction. It’s here. It’s here now.


Local Councils need to harness the power of AI. Especially the power of Generative AI when it comes to communicating and engaging with our local communities.


We need to make Generative AI work FOR us. Yet many councils are in danger of missing the true significance of AI and its related technologies. 


Don’t be one of them. Please.

Councils smart enough to pick up and effectively use the new tools on offer will save themselves significant time and effort, whilst fostering trust and increasing standing in the community.


These tools are not human - but they require humans to run. The good news is that AI does not have to be a technological challenge for local councils - it’s actually better and easier to exploit AI if you’re not a “techie” person. 


This is about opportunity – not about being “techie”.

There are now hundreds of generative AI tools available - most of which you’ve probably never heard of. It can be really hard to know where to start.

On Wednesday 10th July 2024, our AI for Councils: Community Engagement event will teach you everything you need to know to utilise and exploit the opportunity of Generative AI in your council.

This is an AI event designed exclusively for local councils.

If you don’t know anything about Generative AI right now – then this event is for you.

If you know just a little about Generative AI right now – then this event is STILL for you.


This one-day event will open your mind to exciting and useful opportunities - and teach you how to exploit them within the constraints of the resources your council has.


For instance, you’ll discover:


  • The critical skill every local council must cultivate in the age of AI - don’t waste months dabbling and going down rabbit holes


  • How ChatGPT is changing community engagement – and three things you MUST do to not get left behind

  • What you should NEVER ask or expect from ChatGPT... not now, nor any time in the immediate future

  • How to use Generative AI to assist with everything from writing press releases, creating content for social media, to support customer service engagement with residents, and so much more


  • How to leverage Generative AI for all aspects of community engagement


And a LOT, LOT more…

I know this is a lot to absorb, but I will break it down and give it to you in bite-size chunks at the event – all from a 100% P-R-A-C-T-I-C-A-L perspective that you’ll be able to relate clearly back to your council.

There is nothing to hold you back – and you don’t need to be a techie to make it work for you. In fact - I repeat - it is actually an advantage NOT to have technical knowledge.


Success with AI for local councils is about knowing HOW TO USE IT – not knowing how it works!


I have chosen to teach this stuff on a one-day LIVE event, broadcast online for TWO main reasons…

#1. Generative AI is B-I-G stuff.

Generative AI arguably represents the most significant development in the community engagement landscape in any of our lifetimes. That means we need to eliminate distractions, extract ourselves from usual working environments, and focus on what AI means for your council.


This event isn’t about a few simple tactics. It’s about how you make the AI work FOR your council, not against you.


#2. Live events make it more useful for you


This might sound selfish, but it’s true! We think we are at our best when teaching live and you deserve our best with a topic of this magnitude. 


Anyone who has attended any of my live training events will tell you they are packed with practical, executable information.

Here’s how the event will stack up:


  • Understand how the tools work together - and where the BIG opportunities are

  • Which of the 300+ tools you really need, and which ones are rubbish

  • How to program the tools for the best results

  • The best uses of AI in community engagement automation

  • Explore latest sector best practice


Secure Your Seat At The Table


There is simply no doubt in my mind that this Generative AI council-specific event will sell out. So avoid disappointment and join us for one day in July.

I can’t emphasise enough that this is NOT a technical event - it is PERFECT  for total AI beginners. You don’t need any AI knowledge or experience to benefit.

Exploiting the enormous opportunities presented by AI is NOT a technical challenge.

You’ll get everything you need at AI for Councils: Community Engagement in July.
