There is an increasing appetite to use online engagement to expand reach and hear from more people - however, the culture shift from traditional to digital engagement hasn't quite caught up. Miranda will share her frank observations, growing pains and wins in helping her organization and clients with this shift.

Testimonials

We have completed the Social Pinpoint Public Participation for our Regional Transportation Plan.  In my opinion, this was the best Public Outreach that has ever occurred here in the area

I loved working with you last time so it’s a no brainer I’ll be using Social Pinpoint again
