Participants will be exposed to the Stakeholder Management Cycle (SMC). The session will also include excerpts from face-to-face interviews the seminar leader had with various managers implementing stakeholder engagement. Skills that the participants will develop also extend to learning: tactics for certain stakeholder types, the art of asking a question and the use of social media in stakeholder engagement as well as effective employee and citizen engagement.
