Community and Stakeholder Engagement Specialist
About the instructor
In these roles, I've worked in science, environment, regulation, and infrastructure-focused organisations. I have developed strategy that has calmed angry people down, built relationships and, when engagement strategy is early and, there is time dedicated to planning, I have achieved time, cost and stress savings for projects and organisations together with great outcomes for the community.
Now, I'm passionate about helping others improve their leadership and engagement skills.
I know if you're able to build skills to identify stakeholders and plan to implement better engagement programs your projects will also run efficiently, great outcomes will be achieved.
