Engage for Success
A stakeholder is anyone who can make or break your organisation.
Engagement with your key stakeholders is therefore critical to your success. Effective stakeholder engagement will minimise risk, identify and capitalise on new opportunities, better address complex issues by generating new and innovative solutions and add value across a range of important dimensions. The challenge is to engage in ways that work for you and for them.
Partners in Change have developed a unique and practical approach to stakeholder engagement. Engage for Success is our unique one-day workshop that is offered through Victoria University Wellington and the University of Auckland Executive programme. It can also be run in-company.
