Stakeholder management can be crucial to the success of a project. After all, almost every great project or workflow is built upon the hard work and collaboration of other people. It is particularly important that those who have the largest influence over, and impact on, the successful completion of a project or venture are carefully managed. 

During this workshop, participants will explore the associated challenges and benefits of stakeholder management. They will learn how to identify key stakeholders and assess their power, influence and areas of interest, and break down the different types of expectations that should be discussed and agreed with stakeholders clearly. 

Participants will also learn how communicating and maintaining good relationships with stakeholders in a way that fits their profile is integral in securing positive outcomes and learn how best to identify and implement their stakeholder management approach in future projects.  

Finally, participants will leave the workshop having identified practical steps they will take to ensure the successful management of stakeholders in future projects and workplace ventures.
