Introduction

Active community partnership projects between corporates or governments and the communities in which these operate aim to co-create societal impact, which in return will positively affect business and governance.

This GLOMACS Strategic Community Relations training seminar aims to provide managers, professional leaders, policy makers, academic professionals and all employees to acquire in-depth insights and hands-on knowledge on how to best create shared value for communities and businesses alike. This GLOMACS training seminar will not only dispel myths relating with community engagement but will also focus on how to manage community stakeholders effectively to ensure a ‘win-win’ and to prevent conflict whenever possible.
