WEBINAR RECORDING: The Engagement Toolkit | What's in your Quiver?

You know the value of effective stakeholder engagement, it's the HOW that often mystifies. Whether it's building a community garden, innovating new products or developing public policy, implementing effective engagement can make or break your project.

Recorded live on Thursday September 11, 2014 

What you will learn:

  • design strategies for effective engagement initiatives
  • gain insight into choosing the best tools for different stakeholder groups
  • best practices and experiences from fellow participants
  • experience designing an engagement initiative with webinar participants

This presentation will offer several case studies on dealing with resistance related to adopting sustainability within organizations. We will address identifying resistance, understanding how it works, and what can be done about it. Several suggestions for dealing with resistance will be offered.

This fast-paced session will leverage online group dynamics to explore stakeholder engagement case stories, craft strategies toward outcomes, and generate ideas for an implementation plan. Participants will exchange most promising practices and explore pros/cons of the array of digital and 'live' tools available in the sustainability professional's quiver.

Who should attend:  Professionals seeking to develop more effective engagement strategies and implement programs with enduring collaboration
