Overview

Community and stakeholder engagement is based on the premise that people who will be affected by a decision have a role in the decision making process. Many organisations are discovering the value of a planned approach to engagement to ensure that expectations are kept in check and the outcomes achieved are realistic and meaningful.

Course Content

This workshop will provide tools for community and stakeholder engagement planning. There are a number of simple steps to a comprehensive planning strategy that will better inform the people delivering and participating in the process. The course will look at the principles of community and stakeholder engagement and draw on ‘real life’ engagement strategies to ensure you walk away with a practical framework to plan your own engagement program.
