Better Boards is pleased to present “Stakeholder Engagement and Responding to a Crisis” in partnership with Lali Wiratunga, National Manager at Westpac’s Davidson Institute.
This webinar examines three key stakeholder groups with whom the Social Sector leadership – board and management must build good stakeholder relationships and engagement strategies.

  1. The workforce including volunteers
  2. Those it serves – clients/customers
  3. Funders and service partners – governments, philanthropic organisations, corporates, community partners and private funders

We will explore:
What is the role of the NFP board in integrating clearly defined stakeholder groups and engagement strategies for those groups at the centre of governance strategy, function and oversight?
How can they work with the executive team to ensure that key stakeholder relationships are effectively managed?
How will the board respond in the event of a crisis?
Come to this webinar with your questions, thoughts and concerns regarding the board’s role in stakeholder engagement, be prepared for discussions to find ideas, solutions and clarity.
