Engagement Training

Knowle West Media Centre’s engagement training helps businesses, academics, arts organisations, local authorities and Living Labs improve their relationships with stakeholders.

– Do you want to build a relationship with a group of new stakeholders but don’t know where to start?
– Would you like to learn more about the issues affecting your audiences?
– Are you keen to forge mutually beneficial connections with new communities?

For over 20 years we have been bringing people together to collaborate and learn from each other. Whether you’re new to the topic and practice of Engagement or you’re looking to expand your existing knowledge, we offer a range of training options to support you and your organisation.

We have previously worked with organisations ranging from University of Bristol and Taylor’s University (Kuala Lumpur) to the members of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) and the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).
