Event Details

In this YEA Collaboration Series webinar, we will provide techniques and tools to enhance and build your network relationships throughout the project lifecycle with a collaborative approach for effective project management and delivery.

The construction industry is about relationships, and the success or failure of a project starts with stakeholder management. Effectively engaging with stakeholders is an ongoing process throughout a project’s entire lifecycle, requiring a collaborative approach that’s designed to listen, educate and inform.

During this webinar, you will gain first-hand insight on how to establish a robust and engaging approach with all internal and external members of your stakeholder group.

From ideation to execution, we will equip you with the tools to identify, map and prioritise key stakeholders, as well as how to collaborate with each profile.

Using real-life project examples from the University of Sydney, Randwick Campus Redevelopment and Sydney Metro Martin Place, we’ll show you how these approaches are applied. This will help you determine the best tactics for effective communication, whilst making the best use of available resources.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to effectively engage with project stakeholders
  • Methods of working with Authorities and community stakeholders
  • Map stakeholders in local and wider network
  • How to make a memorable impact on your project
