Cross Sector Partnering is complex and challenging. Bringing people and organisations together from different sectors and keeping them together to deliver results is not easy. When partnering is ad hoc, directionless and unproductive, it can result in delays, extra costs, greater risks and diminished value for all involved.

This comprehensive 5 week Partnering EssentialsTM Facilitated Online Course is hosted on the CQUniversity Australia platform and is now open for registration. The course teaches participants the skills needed to partner effectively, with an in depth view of the knowledge and tools needed to maximise value from partnering.
