Identify as an Idea Maker!

21 January

In Round Two of the Elevator Project we want to get to know you better. We received such rich feedback from last year’s community of imagineers, and we want to use that knowledge to improve how we all work together to bring your ideas to life.

So identify as an Idea Maker!

We want to know who you are so we can communicate with you better. Meanwhile, closer contact with all of our Idea Makers will allow us to better track the impact of both your projects and our support so that we can keep improving the EP process year after year. But don’t worry, identifying as an ideamaker is easier than opening a Facebook account – just answer these four questions:

1. Can we have your contact Info?

Give us your name, e-mail and phone number, and sign up to receive email updates. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and subscribe to this blog. Help us keep you in the Idea Maker loop!

2. Do you have a project idea that will make Guelph an even better place to live, work and/or play?

-Yes I do!

-Not yet but I’m sure something will come to me

3. If you answered “Yes I do!” to question 2, how would you describe your idea?

-Ready to rock!

-Nearly ready to rock, just a few kinks to work out

-About half way there. Some pieces are in place but I still have things to figure out

-I’ve got started but I have a long way to go

-It’s just an idea right now

See? 4 easy steps to getting connected with the EP community of imagineers! We look forward to working with all of you in making Guelph a better place to live, work, and play.
