COMMUNITY SUPPORT KEY TO GOVERNMENT ADVOCACY

"Community support is a key pillar of a successful government advocacy campaigns. If the community understands your motivation, supports your objective and advocates with you, you’re more likely to get an outcome from Government. Walking the corridors of parliament house and knocking on the right doors is only a small element of creating public policy change - more than ever, community support is needed to deliver change."

Sean Sammon

Chief Executive Officer

RECOGNISE STAKEHOLDER INFLUENCE

“Now more than ever, an organisation's strategic objectives are influenced by a diverse range of external stakeholders, whether these be government, the public sector, regulators or the community. Understanding what motivates and influences your stakeholders, how they make decisions and how best to engage with them can go a long way to positioning your organisation for long term success."

Sharaf Khan

Manager, Client Strategy

UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE COMES FIRST

"Decisions are ultimately made by people, not the positions that they occupy. If you can understand the person you are engaging, the pressures affecting them and their obligations, you will be well on your way to a favourable decision."

Matthew Weber

Senior Associate

RELATIONSHIPS PLAY A SIGNIFICANT ROLE TOWARD WHAT DRIVES US

"Relationships, no matter their nature, play a significant role toward what drives most of us to progress or digress in life. Consequently, engaging with people in the right way is often fundamental for success, especially in our modern world where technology is everywhere and can lose its purpose if engagement is ill-considered. Good connections with others have the potential to not only provide opportunities and deliver favourable outcomes, they may also lead you down a path you may have not expected or thought remotely possible - the possibilities are endless."

Juliet Israel

Associate

CONSULTATION IS AN EXPLORATORY PROCESS

"Engaging with your community is about more than just consultation and ticking a box. It is an ongoing, explorative, and above all reciprocal endeavour. If done right, community engagement will create meaningful and trustful relationships between you and the communities in which you operate."

Analyst
