“This is a time of head-snapping change and everywhere you look there is disruption and upheaval. But very few things have changed as much as marketing has – e.g. digital, search, social, content marketing, mobile, Ai, marketing automation, data visualisation, the cloud, in bound, analytics etc, etc etc. That’s a lot of change. But underneath all this change, one thing has, unfortunately, stayed the same. And it might be the number one obstacle to great marketing in most companies.
This obstacle is preventing you from doing great things. It’s befuddling your best strategies, watering down your strongest brews and spoiling your most brilliant executions. I think you know what I’m talking about – your Stakeholders! They’re ruining your marketing. Everybody understands this but it just keeps happening.”
-Doug Kessler, Velocity Partners, UK.
Doug Kessler nailed it in his summary of one of the key challenges for marketers – managing stakeholders. So, we thought we better provide a workshop that takes you through the both the theory of stakeholder management and the practicalities of identifying which stakeholders are important and then developing a road map in managing them.
An interactive workshop looking at both internal and external stakeholders as well reviewing cultural considerations. Plus, you will hear from some of New Zealand’s leading marketers on ‘traps for young players’ in stakeholder management and how they approach this critical part of implementing marketing strategy.
A live session will be held each Wednesday at 12:30pm - 2:00pm over 4 weeks. The facilitator will present that week's topic live online with other participants. There will also be activities and resources to support your learning.
All marketers who want to manage their stakeholders in a more efficient manner
