Andrew’s top three tips

Andrew has been doing plenty of online stakeholder engagement and has learnt a few valuable things that he shared in his blog post, titled “Three fast tips for online stakeholder engagement.”

We’re pleased that GroupMap scored a mention in Andrew’s blog post as “online engagement tool for people to provide their input individually in real-time during an online stakeholder engagement process.”

Thanks Andrew for the shoutout.

So let’s have a deeper look at Andrew’s top three tips.


Tip 1: Keep participants above the line

Andrew commented in his post that engagement should be all about “encouraging them to give ideas that are future focused; thinking about where the opportunities are in relation to the issue and what’s possible.”


Tip 2: Equity in input

We love this tip from Andrew because this is what we aim to provide with GroupMap: “[give] people…the chance for that more intimate conversation where they get the chance to be heard.

Tip 3: Have workshop templates ready to go

Again, another awesome tip from Andrew is to get all your templates ready for the online engagement workshop that you are running so that “…you to get the data from the workshop ….. and get it out to your participants as quick as possible.”

Of course this is something that can you easily do via GroupMap’s readily available or custom templates along with a reporting functionality that allows you to download all workshop discussions, voting and comments at a click of a button!
