In November 2019 this unique and highly sought-after global program is being run in

Wellington. It provides those working in partnerships with in-depth development on how to

• Enhanced confidence and competence as partnership practitioners

• A framework and knowledge for robust, efficient and innovative partnerships

• Knowing common principles, barriers and enablers of multi-stakeholder


• Ways to overcome common partnership brokering challenges (both for those

working internally and independently)

• Personal and professional insights into the roles, skills and competencies needed in

building successful collaborations

• Membership of a global professional association of partnership brokers offering

support, research, networks and further development opportunities.


The course can be used in two ways: one as an individual or team professional development,

and two, as real-time partnership building. When partners from different organisations attend

together, they build a common language and framework while developing strategies for the

design, management and review of their partnership.

On this intensive program, you’ll be part of a diverse group from business, government,

philanthropy, education, community and voluntary sectors. The group will be limited to 24

participants with two facilitators in order to maximise the potential for exchange and personal

attention to individuals.
