Events & Facilitation

Prospex excels in designing and delivering participatory and interactive stakeholder events. There is no such thing as a standard event and Prospex takes special care to tailor its structured stakeholder engagement to your specific requirements. We have delivered these services for large conferences, small expert symposiums, research focus groups, membership boards, stakeholder workshops, alliance gatherings, corporate events such as annual general meetings, and many more.

The objective of the Prospex approach is to create a genuine dialogue and process of exchange between you and the stakeholders attending the event. The result is a high degree of engagement by the stakeholders on the issues that concern you; and a commitment to address the next steps in overcoming obstacles and realising opportunities. Prospex designs these structured stakeholder engagements in direct consultation with you and facilitates the sessions to a reference-setting professional standard. Because stakeholders generate a wealth of information and inputs in these sessions. Prospex has a team of trained reporters to capture the detailed interactions and critical outputs that you can use to reach agreed goals and next steps.

How this service helps you

Public events are an opportunity to promote your organisation and engage with stakeholders. Too often however, events are highly structured and rigid, with over-packed agendas full of formal presentations. Interactions with participants are reduced to Q&A sessions and chats during coffee breaks. These are missed opportunities to develop constructive relations with stakeholders and gain their support. Prospex services enable you to have a genuine dialogue with stakeholders at events and to develop shared ownership and commitment on the issues of importance to your sector and organisation.
