New Perspectives on Stakeholder Engagement
Chances are you are currently undertaking some form of stakeholder engagement.
We’d wager that you’re not getting as much out of it as you could, and that your process hasn’t changed much in the last decade despite big shifts in expectations for transparency and dialogue.
We believe it’s time for companies to really bring the outside in; bringing more intention, honesty and sophistication to the way in which they engage stakeholders in order to get more in return. Those that do gain the triple advantage of:
- Competitive agility: leveraging outside knowledge and ideas to keep close to evolving trends and driving value by finding smart ways to bring insights and stakeholders into the heart of your business.
- Collaborative advantage: working in partnership to align future markets and systems with your long-term trajectory as a business and the needs of society.
- Reputational integrity: building lasting relationships and shifting internal behaviours and culture to enhance the long-term position of your business and brand.
Places are limited due to the nature of the venue, therefore please book your spot now to avoid disappointment.
Salterbaxter’s 8th ‘Directions’ event will focus on the concrete steps you can take to enhance the return you get from stakeholder engagement and collaboration.
At this day-long event, our speakers and participants will:
- Challenge your perspectives on the value of stakeholder engagement and the ways in which you can apply new engagement principles to your business.
- Showcase learnings & insights from leading companies who are already achieving an outside-In driven ROI.
- Explore the practical tools and approaches being used to transform the engagement process.
- Connect you with other practitioners and external stakeholders.
More speakers will be coming soon.
