Effective community and stakeholder engagement is an increasingly important factor in ensuring the timely delivery of major projects. Disputes, poor stakeholder relations and disgruntled community groups can cause significant delays and even impact project feasibility and business continuity.
In addition, organisations must consider the long-term reputational implications which can affect the ability of an organisation to win bids and attract funding for future projects. While organisations are increasingly becoming more aware and focused on these risks and the opportunities for performance enhancement, the challenge is to acquire the leading skills and strategies to improve capability in this area. As the first forum of its kind in the region this timely event will equip attendees with practical tools and strategies to engage and partner more closely with stakeholders and communities, gaining their support and playing a critical role in fast-tracking the execution and delivery of major projects. Featuring key insights from experts, practitioners and solution providers from across the Asia-Pacific region, participants will leave the event with a sound understanding of managing stakeholder and community engagement to ensure the smooth delivery and success of major projects.
