Partnering starts with proper Communication

Some rules of proper Communication

Enabling communication

Enabling Communication

To achieve Partnering, Communication needs to be carefully prepared.

Prepare Communications to get the right messages across.

To plan communication, please reflect the following steps:

Plan communication

Plan Communication

1. Put yourself in the position of your potential partners. What do they need to know, and want to hear? What will stop them listening to what you have to say?

2. Identify and list your different potential partners. Identify who to communicate with and why.

3. Drill down into your communication objectives and clarify specific objectives for each audience. What do they need and want to know from you?

4. Be prepared for return questions. Present yourself by a company profile or competence for project contribution.

Experience shows:

Networking is build on reputation.

Peer based learning from successful samples is an effective way.

Use of ‘Mediators’ for first-time communication between international RDI contributors might be an advantage.

Once the doors are opened to international project partners, recommendations are passed more easily to new partners.
