"Stakeholder Engagement - A Contact Sport"

For project developers stakeholder engagement means meeting angry opponents, listening to frightened communities and lobbying politicians. 

A client sought WPNT’s skills for two international, specialist teams prepare for and practice critical conversations, as well as act out group meetings with tough Q+A sessions. The teams were progressing critical, but controversial infrastructure projects. We coached them on making each stakeholder contact effective, in order to increase their ability to gain public acceptance, and build trust through genuine dialogue.
