A New Year...A New Engagement Strategy
The new year is underway, and with it the launch of new ideas, goals and commitments. Many of us celebrate the new year looking to refresh and refocus areas of our lives. If you think about it, doesn't it make good sense to apply this approach to our work?
In the world of Stakeholder and Indigenous engagement, the past year was filled with significant changes. For businesses to thrive in the world of public participation (P2), it’s critical to keep abreast of trends and events that have the potential to impact your business, and position your company to manage these effectively. Some of the questions you may want to reflect on include:
What engagement approaches worked? What didn’t?
Who are the stakeholders we engaged? Who do we need to engage this year?
What were the top issues of 2017 among your stakeholders? What do you expect they will be concerned with in 2018?
What initiatives are underway that may impact the way we engage our stakeholders?
What regulatory changes can we expect?
What legal and political trends are emerging?
