Groups with Shared Interests (GSI’s)
Workshops for Groups with Shared Interests bring a diverse group of individuals, business representatives and government agencies together for the purpose of:
- formulating a shared Vision for the group or business sector
- starting a public interest association or a sector-wide organisation
- determining strategies for influencing public behavior or government policy
GSI workshops involve a greater level of pre-workshop research than a typical two-day workshop for nonprofit organisations (NPOs).
Another major difference between workshops for NPOs and workshops for GSIs is the design and detail of the workshop digest. While a NPO workshop digest documents the workshop inputs, outputs and next steps for the NPO, a GSI workshop digest is typically designed to influence the next steps the government or the industry as a whole should take to improve the quality of life in the community.
