Workshop: Why and How To Develop Strategic Partnerships

“Creating more value for the customer drives better business outcomes and increased satisfaction –and, as we all know, these, in turn, drive growth. With this in mind, it’s no wonder that 72% of corporates have won a significant customer contract through an innovation partnership.” EY

The Case for Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships are a way to expand your business and reach different audiences. Conventionally, partnerships are seen as a way to access new potential customers.

However, the potential benefits of successful partnerships can go much further, instead having a more comprehensive impact. They can lead to new customers for your business, as well as opportunities for:

  • co-marketing
  • resource sharing
  • community impact
  • increased brand exposure
  • employee engagement/team building
  • and countless others

Once strategic creativity is deployed, most leaders of organizations begin to identify opportunities throughout their ecosystem that previously have been treated as ad hoc projects or overlooked altogether.

What kind of partnerships are waiting to be discovered in your ecosystem?
