You can forget key stakeholders but they won’t forget you!

Effective stakeholder and community engagement is an essential part of the governance process in achieving successful infrastructure project and change programme outcomes. Good engagement builds realistic expectations, reassurance on process and mutual understanding. While it may be a truism, not enough organisations however undertake this critical component with any tangible rigour – they may talk the talk, but in many cases don’t walk the walk. The implications of failing to engage appropriately can range from project delay to abandonment, with associated reputational impact. This workshop will explain aspects of the subject with refreshing practical tools and insights from consultation practitioners and experienced project managers. Learn how to genuinely assess and strategically engage even with the most challenging stakeholders you are likely to encounter on projects.
