Opening Ceremony Keynote – Stakeholder Mapping

Steering your organisation through the maze of stakeholders is always a challenge, but during a crisis the stakes increase and it can be the difference between a temporary setback and permanent organisational damage.
In the last months we have seen the amazing speed with which Covid-19 can spread, causing financial and reputational damage to companies, but more importantly also physical harm to their employees. In the current hyper-connected and politically charged world, being able to understand who who needs to be informed, who is impacted and who needs to act during a crisis is essential.
As Project Management Professionals, it is critical to manage your network of stakeholders effectively. Therefore, planning ahead to optimize your response and improve your chances of retaining their trust is instrumental to every project’s success. This is even more important in the current Covid-19 conditions, which don’t appear to be going away any time soon. Now more than ever, the ability to map stakeholders and see ahead is an invaluable skill that every project manager should possess.
Join us to find out how effective stakeholder mapping can make or break your project in an unpredictable world. The keynote presentation on Monday 28 September at 16:30 will be followed by a practical session on Tuesday 29 September at 14:00. We look forward to your participation!

Note: Whilst attendance in the first event is suggested in order to fully understand the principles, the practical session is open for everyone to attend.
