Crisis Communications – "for me and maybe others who can’t go to SIG Marcomms meetings/workshops it would be really useful to get some guidelines about this – the slide decks from you last workshop looked really interesting and what you all learnt is specifically for NRENs.

How to do outreach and engagement - not just events and materials? How to get their attention. How to integrate what we have to target audiences' everyday interests and activities?
