Community Consultation & Research
Global Echo principal consultant, Hala Abdelnour, has worked with a range of professionals and organizations over the past 15 years in researching issues that impact communities both in Australia and overseas. Some of these issues include violence against women, emergency services, family law, substance abuse, among others.
The research conducted by Global Echo has fed into reports to government bodies, Courts and academic research. We are constantly looking for ways to enrich public policy and empirical practice via research and consultation and we believe that this is central to productivity and efficiency across a range of sectors.
Event Planning & Design
Global Echo consultants are fond of community, gathering, cultural explorations, creativity and bringing people together. This has led us to be directly, and or indirectly linked to event planning and design over the years.
Our team has been involved in planning and running educational camps, art expo’s, community festivals, educational forums, conferences, exhibitions, poetry/spoken word events, and more. We have done this in Australia and overseas.
We are excited to roll out a series of 1001 Melbournian Nights events. Debuted in 2016 at the Fair@Square Festival, we are planning to run a series of storytelling, creative writing and performance workshops across Melbourne and eventually Australia. These bring the ancient tradition of storytelling to our day-to-day lives. The workshops are instrumental in building community connections and a stronger sense of identity and belonging.
