This Month’s Topic will be: Stakeholder Management and Communication: Know Your Customer’s Customer
How do you effectively manage stakeholders on a large capital project when you’re one of many contractors? How do you effectively manage project risk with so many lines of communication between different companies? Knowing how you fit into the overall project organization, and understanding who’s your customer’s customer (and sometimes, your customer’s customer’s customer) is an integral part of effective stakeholder management. Presented from a small consultant’s point of view, the presentation will discuss different strategies for effective stakeholder engagement and management and highlight some lessons learned along the way.

Speakers for this Professional Development Event are;
- Michele Brown – President, United Way of Anchorage
- Topic: Leadership and Collective Impact
- Michele's presentation is about Collective Impact. It brings people together, in a structured way, to achieve social change. People come together to collectively define a problem and create a shared vision to solve it. It is data-driven and establishes shared measurements, which allows for accountability and continuous improvement. It fosters mutually reinforcing activities. Coordinating collective efforts to maximize the end result rather than working in isolation. It encourages continuous communication, building trust and relationships among all participants and honest assessment of best practices. To make all this happen, there needs to be a strong backbone. That means having a team dedicated to orchestrating the work of the group. That’s where project management skills are needed, to facilitate all of these conditions which together produce extraordinary results. Collective impact takes us from common goals to uncommon results.
