Stakeholder Engagement Workshop 230125

Training Overview

This course is designed to understand how stakeholders can influence your organization's directive and how to successfully engage with them to foster long-term relationships. Stakeholders are individuals or groups who have an interest or role in the organization’s programs or are impacted by them. You will learn how each stakeholder will have a different level of involvement and influence, often with diverse and sometimes conflicting interests and concerns. You will understand how to engage relevant stakeholders to achieve an acceptable outcome. Gain the support of critical stakeholders, anticipate problems, and endeavour to improve organizational outcomes for groups and individuals.

Learn techniques that can be used for constituent management, fundraising, awards, policy, program delivery, R&D and impact tracking, to name a few. We will enable you to develop an engagement plan, including engagement frequency, method and channels.
