Learn how to start a community engagement process to achieve successful outcomes. 

Susan Carter of The Community Studio and Max Hardy of Max Hardy Consulting invite you to join them in this online community engagement learning opportunity – Questions Change Everything.

Following on from his TED Talk released in December. Max Hardy has joined me to develop an online course to help you achieve the kinds of successful community engagement outcomes he achieves all the time.   

Yes, even when the situation is complex and seems impossible, even when stakeholders are angry at you and each other!

Susan and Max will guide you through the early engagement planning stages they have used time and time again to create successful community engagement processes and ultimately build great relationships with stakeholders.

When you invest in the course, you'll receive: 

  • Guided video lessons 
  • Online group workshop to share learnings 
  • A 12-page workbook  
  • All the planning tools you need to craft a powerful question and start your community engagement process off on the right foot.

The best thing is the process and tools are repeatable and scalable, so you can use them again and again, on big and small projects – just like we do.

Bonus offer! Book a team of 10 and receive your own private online workshop to craft your question with Max.

About the instructors

Like many community and stakeholder engagement specialists, I started my working life somewhere completely different! I'm a scientist and started my working life in environmental science roles. I especially loved connecting people with science and the environment and so my career started to change. First, it was with roles in science communication, then I took to behaviour change programs and then to community and stakeholder engagement. 

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.
