TRAINING:  community and stakeholder engagement

 

At Practical Consulting Group, we develop training solutions that provide immediate benefit to our participants, very practically. We like you to return to your workplace and begin to use your new knowledge and skills the very next day.

All of our sessions are highly interactive, containing that "just-right" balance of concepts and information versus the hands-on learning, supporting all styles of learning, and all levels of experience.

Our training is available across Australia and New Zealand, in both the cities and the smallest rural towns - we are happy to travel!

Consultation v Engagement

for Local Government

We used to consult, now we engage; what is the difference?  Is there a difference?

Good engagement practice can add value to your decision making processes, build rapport and trust with your community, and lead to improved acceptance and better outcomes.

Working with highly-regarded concepts, leading-edge practice and thinking, we will assist in making community engagement easy to understand, practical to implement and most importantly effective for your organisation.

Consultation v Engagement

for Not-for-Profits and Associations

We used to consult, now we engage; what is the difference?  Is there a difference?

Good engagement practice can add significant value to membership and clients, thus improving their overall satisfaction with your organisation.

 

Engagement can assist your decision making processes, build rapport and trust, and lead to improved outcomes, with a higher rate of acceptance.

Working with highly-regarded concepts, leading-edge practice and thinking, we will assist in making community engagement easy to understand, practical to implement and most importantly effective for your organisation.

Engaging Internally

for all organisations

How do we expect to effectively engage externally, when we don't internally engage well?

For an organisation to engage effectively, the whole organisation must have an engaging mindset. Hard work we hear you say; yes it is, so the sooner that you start, the quicker we can get there!

This session includes components of frameworks and operational procedures, along with change management (cultural) techniques, to assist your organisation to become great at engaging; externally and internally.

This training is for all organisations (government, not-for-profit, corporate/commercial and community).

Engagement for Executives

CEO's, Directors, GM's and Managers

How do you build and support and engaging organisation?

This 3-hour session will provide executives with all the key information and strategy that they will need to lead an organisation that engages successfully.

Whether it be building a policy/framework, resourcing engagement, measuring and evaluating, or simply understanding the key principles.

 

This session will empower executives to lead an engaging organisation, without the need to become the subject matter experts themselves.

Engagement for Elected Representatives

Councillors, Mayors and other Elected Officials

"I was elected to make decisions", we hear you say.

 

Community engagement processes takes nothing away from you, a matter of fact, it helps and supports you to make better decisions (more informed, more accepted, and with all the available information) and create improved outcomes for your community (if they had input, surely it must be better for them).

This 3-hour session will provide elected representatives with all the key information and strategy that they need to understand, to support them in their role, and to assist them in leading their organisation, one that engages successfully.
