What is your experience when you need to tell us something, and how we can improve?
Thank you for your interest.
The City of Greater Geelong invites you to take part in customer experience research activities with us. Participants will be able to directly contribute to improving how our wide range of services are delivered.
We are interested in getting a better understanding of your experiences when contacting us for information; when requesting services; when reporting an issue; or making a payment. We also want your feedback on potential new systems and tools to improve your experience in the future.
Using research approaches such as surveys, interviews, workshops and focus groups, we want to better understand your experience as a customer of the City of Greater Geelong. We will let you know how much time the specific engagement you will undertake when we invite you to participate.
If you want to share your insights and help us improve our service delivery, please register your interest via the form below by 26th April, 2021.

In order to find the most suitable methods of engagement for you, we have developed this questionnaire to capture your details, preferences and experiences.
By completing this questionnaire you consent to us inviting you to take part in research with the City.
Your information will only be used for the purpose of inviting you to participate in this research project.
The questionnaire will let us know which research projects you are interested in. As we plan different research activities that match your interests, we will contact you and invite you to take part. We appreciate your time and your willingness to participate. We will always provide detailed information on what to expect when we send you an invitation.
If you are unable to take part in an activity that's okay. We will continue to keep you on our register and invite you to other opportunities unless you choose to opt out of being a part of our research community.
We take a human centred approach to our research. This means that we will be using different research methods with you depending on the topic and how you chose to engage with us.
We understand that not everyone has access to, or are comfortable using, online tools so we will use a number of research practices face to face, over the phone and online to enough options that everyone feels able to participate. This will include surveys (similar to the questionnaire you have just completed) as well as interviewing, focus groups and prototype testing.
All of our in-person practices will follow strict Covid-19 guidelines to ensure we are staying safe and in line with government restrictions.
The National Relay Service is available as a phone solution for people who are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment.
We acknowledge the Wadawurrung People as the Traditional Owners of the Land, Waterways and Skies. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are part of our Greater Geelong community today.
