“I’m involved in a new initiative to try and help maximise the potential of digital media for community engagement. In recent weeks I’ve been working with Simon Grice, Steven Feldman and Hugh Flouch (Harringay Online) to set up BeLocal Consulting, starting with a series of workshops. Here’s the blurb:

“BeLocal Consulting contributes to the community empowerment agenda by helping local authorities, community groups and citizens to exploit digital media around community issues.

“With a combination of expertise in community development, new media and service management, we help local authorities through the following process:

  1. Understanding the issues
  2. Establishing partnerships and building a strategy
  3. Supporting implementation of the strategy
  4. Assessment and review.”
