Thank you for joining us. See you next year!

Lighthouse Independent Media’s one-of-a-kind conference kicked off on 5 July, and we were privileged to be able to learn and network with community engagement professionals in the region. It was a day of insightful learnings and takeaways that are crucial to every practitioner to emulate in their own organisation to drive engagement with the respective communities.

One of the key takeaways by our opening address speaker, Mr. Patrick Tay, Member of Parliament and Assistant Secretary-General of National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), highlighted the 6Cs of effective stakeholder communication: Collaboration, Communication, Cultivate, Care, Connect, and Create. These principles apply to various sectors and address stakeholders such as managers, employees, and potential candidates. Tay stressed the importance of engagement, feedback, and timely information delivery. He advised tailoring communication to different audience segments and fostering trust through empathy and honesty, particularly in challenging situations. His sentiments were echoed by our other speakers from Singtel/Optus, GovTech Singapore, Singapore Pools, MCCY, SG Enable, Children’s Aid Society, UBS, Sustainable Living Lab and more.

We are heartened by the positive response and support we’ve received at this conference, and we look forward to the 2024 edition. See you real soon!
