As a government communicator, you know that input “data” comes in from many channels, like meetings, phone calls, emails, social media, online polls, online engagement, and scientific surveys. You also know the value of data in decision making. But do you know which data you need for which decisions? What channels are good for what data? What makes data unrepresentative or even dangerous? 

In this entertaining webinar, you’ll get these answers and more from a data expert, as you learn the surprising science of community input. Packed with helpful frameworks and interesting facts, this session left recent Certified Public Communicator students at TCU “wanting more.” You’ll learn strategies and tools to better manage the input you have and to get the good data you need. You’ll learn how to save time and avoid mistakes by ignoring bad data. You’ll even have the chance to get live answers to your specific input questions and challenges.
