Building trust
and influence

In a world characterised by complex and interdependent challenges, organisations must collaborate. Yet there are many constraints to collaboration, and many examples where a deficit of trust between government, industry and civil society has hampered progress or the acceptance and introduction of disruptive new business models.

Organisations must engage with a diverse range of stakeholders to build relationships, identify areas of shared interest, generate trust and earn a licence to innovate and scale. The best leaders know this and position their organisations as progressive partners for development, deftly moving the conversation from transaction to transformation.
