Open Workshop on Community Engagement

At Kaizen, we have developed an approach that creates clarity about what engagement is and establishes best practice principles of how to deliver it. This one-day workshop introduces you to these concepts and you will take away concrete models that will support you in planning and delivering successful engagement processes. Our models allow a universal understanding of the engagement process to be achieved across a team or organisation, even amongst those for whom community engagement and involvement is not a natural instinct.

In putting together our training course, we have combined our knowledge of legislative and best practice frameworks with our experience of delivering engagement in the field. We have developed a rigorous approach that enables us to engage harder to reach groups in the community and bridge cultural and generational divides.

 

Course Components

Kaizen workshops are highly interactive and practical, using knowledge and experience from the group to bring alive the concepts covered.

• Examine what is “engagement”
• Identify key organisational and personal barriers to successful engagement
• Explore how to tap into key motivators
• Explore the Kaizen models of engagement and how they fit with your client group
• Leave with cohesive models and practical tools to take back to your organization

 

Our Experience

We have delivered large-scale community engagement projects funded by organisations including Camden Council, South Kilburn New Deal for Communities and Transport for London. We have also delivered bespoke engagement training and consultancy for other organisations in a variety of settings, including in the health, employment, housing, community safety and youth sectors.

Kaizen runs these free workshops as part of our ethos as a social enterprise committed to knowledge sharing. Unfortunately we are not able to provide lunch but refreshments will be provided.
