The missing piece: developing and maintaining stakeholder relationships through sponsorship and endorsing organizations

Activity: Talk typesInvited presentation


Public gardens often rely on community partnerships to advance their mission, but is it possible to engage external stakeholders at a deeper level? This 90 minute interactive session will explore creating and cultivating stakeholder relationships with examples of current models that impact stakeholder engagement and growth.

Find the power to develop long term relationships with external stakeholders to “endorse” and “support” educational tools. Community partners bring new opportunities to sustain and expand educational programming through outreach; however they can also bring a set of pre-determined expectations and barriers to work together.

What is the missing piece that will deepen this connection? You! In this interactive presentation, I will outline the expectations, priorities and goals that can set botanical education programs apart from their competition and begin to build the foundation of stronger stakeholder framework. I will also define the missing piece to successful long term community partner relationships.
