Multi-stakeholder collaboration are crucial if we are to create a more inclusive and sustainable world.
The evidence is building for partnering as the leading delivery mechanism for social, economic, cultural, environmental, crisis management and conflict prevention programmes across the globe.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals has even dedicated one of the 17 global goals to partnership.
Partnering itself is easier said than done. The Brokering Better Partnerships one-day workshop is designed by the Partnership Brokers Association (PBA) to assist those working in, or embarking on partnerships to partner effectively. The workshop will provide you and your organisation with:
• An understanding of multi-stakeholder collaboration (‘partnering’)
• An opportunity to explore partnering challenges and good practice principles
• An opportunity to consider what it takes to partner effectively
• A number of frameworks and concepts and the opportunity to share different views/experiences
• An introduction to the concept of ‘partnership brokering’
• An opportunity to share some ideas for action
