Speaker:
Debra Paul

Whether dealing with a potential conflict or facilitating a desired outcome, what can we do to maximise the chances of success? We often talk about engaging with stakeholders and managing stakeholder relationships but what does this actually mean and is it ever completely possible? Debra Paul, co-author of The Human Touch, discusses the need to think about the person not the job title and suggests some frameworks and techniques that can help us work successfully with the people we encounter in our professional lives. In this interactive and practical session, Debra will explain the drivers behind producing the book and will explore how we might use some of the approaches in practice, in order to gain insights and handle those tricky situations all too familiar to anyone working to deliver effective business change.
