"Working in a busy office, I found the IAP2 training course really useful for focusing on the processes of engagement, and developing a meaningful conversation with stakeholders.  The course facilitator Tanya had a very engaging and professional manner, and kept the group motivated and involved throughout the process. I look forward to working with Tanya again in the future."

“Thanks for introducing me to IAP2. I enjoyed new learnings that I would not normally have the opportunity to, so appreciated the exposure to all these new different concepts, thinking and methods. Also great to get into a room to toss around, share, discuss and think about these concepts with others. Now to put these into practice!”

“The IAP2 training I did with Tanya Burdett is one of the most useful trainings I have undertaken in my career. The content of the training is well developed including the introduction of practical techniques in planning for effective community engagement and interesting case studies. Classroom discussions provide a golden chance to share experiences and lessons from other projects in the world. The training strengthened my understanding of community engagement theoretically and practically and I now use what I learnt from the training in my daily work including Resettlement Action Plan development, ethnical minority Development Plan preparation and feasibility study of development projects.”
Jun Zeng, Social Development Specialist, The World Bank, Beijing Office, IAP2 course participant 2009
