Global Partnership Brokers Training

Partnership Brokers Training

November 28 – December 1, 2016

Calgary, Alberta

There is a growing demand for greater competence in managing the partnering process in multi-stakeholder partnerships. This is particularly true for business, nonprofit, and government sectors that are increasingly seeking to work together to solve complex social problems.

The Partnership Brokers Association, together with The Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations and JS Daw & Associates, are pleased to bring the globally recognized Partnership Brokers Training program to Calgary. This is an intensive program, designed for a diverse group of partnership practitioners from business, nonprofit, community, government, and philanthropy. Successful program participants bring a combination of education and/or experience to the program that allows them to critically evaluate and apply the partnership brokering skills learned.

In this skills training you will:

  • Gain a theoretical framework for partnership brokering and the development of inclusive and innovative partnerships, consortia, and coalitions.
  • Develop skills in scoping, resource-mapping, facilitation, interest-based negotiation, relationship management, reaching agreement, and reviewing.
  • Explore common partnership brokering challenges and how to address them.
  • Create individualized action plans to apply the lessons from the course.

$2,250* CCVO member rate  |  $2,500* non-member rate

*Eligible participants may apply to the Canada-Alberta Job Grant program before October 28 for a 2/3 fee reimbursement.

Training Venue: University of Calgary, MacEwan Conference and Event Centre (402 Collegiate Blvd. NW)

Time: 9 am – 5 pm each day (coffee and networking begins at 8:30 am)

This Partnership Brokers training will challenge you at the personal level as much as at the professional level. I found it to be very practical, and have already used tools I learned within my organization to strengthen and redefine our current partnership.”
