The capacity for changemakers to solve the great problems of our generation depends on a groundswell of support from many quarters. This means stakeholder engagement has to be a critical element of any organisation’s strategy. It involves identifying the key people who can affect your work and then crafting the right messages and evidence to demonstrate why your issue needs support, and that you are relevant, trustworthy, transparent, responsible, responsive and inclusive.
There are many layers to stakeholder engagement – from an individual and community level, all the way to the highest levels of government. In between, there are many key groups and organisations that need to know who you are, your vision and purpose, the important work you do and how they can help you succeed in improving the lives of people and communities across the country. Relationships built on trust, mutual understanding, integrity, commitment and transparency are key essential to your success.
Our specialists can help you develop a comprehensive strategy and then implement it, guiding and supporting you along the way.
We never thought we would, but we have engaged 8 different specialists from the Collective over the last 2 years to support our organisational growth and change. It has saved us time, money and heartache working with a community with our best interests at heart.
