Stakeholder engagement is an incredibly important and effective element of any significant strategic project or venture. Effective stakeholder engagement facilitates participation in the decision-making process by key stakeholder groups. This may include internal stakeholder groups (i.e. staff) or external stakeholder groups (e.g. customers or community members) who are likely to be impacted by changes from a particular project or initiative, and/or who have valuable or unique insights to share that will help inform the project’s success.
Under the umbrella of stakeholder engagement, we can assist with:
- Participation style stakeholder workshops, whereby the stakeholder groups are encouraged to have direct contribution and involvement in the project;
- Consultation style stakeholder workshops, whereby the stakeholder groups are invited to share information, opinions and/or ideas to inform the direction of the project; and
- Informative style stakeholder workshops, whereby we assist with communicating and informing stakeholder groups of decisions, progress and/or the status of a particular project.
