Client, Customer and Stakeholder Engagement/ Surveys/Program

Green Measuring Spoons

 What is our Value Proposition?

MDN Consulting and its associates have many years’ experience working with commercial organisations both at strategic and operational levels. We have assisted numerous organisations in many facets of their business and have observed that they continue to work hard to ensure their Clients, Customers, Stakeholders and other external and internal parties are provided with the best service.


MDN also knows that many organisations undertake periodic surveys of their Client/Customer base to gauge external perceptions about the services they provide. Our experience is that such surveys often use a ‘tick the box’ approach and are therefore limited in scope, engagement and effectiveness. This often leads to incomplete and constrained responses, resulting in disappointing outcomes and very little change.


In order to address the inherent limitations with these types of survey approaches, MDN has developed its own Client/Customer and Stakeholder Engagement Program.


MDN has the tools, technology and experience to significantly enhance your customer service, delivery and customer satisfaction.


Our approach and methodology enable an organisation to better understand service issues and provide a comprehensive appreciation of service improvement opportunities by more effectively engaging with a wider range of Clients, Customers and Stakeholders.


This is achieved by adopting a ‘one-on-one’ approach where we interview or otherwise engage with Clients, Customers and Stakeholders in a more in-depth, personal and effective way. Although on-line methods are used to manage the process, the key to MDN’s approach is the personal engagement with your Clients, Customers and Stakeholders.


This could be an ideal time to consider a better way to connect with your Clients, Customers and Stakeholders and more effectively understand and respond to their needs and feedback generally.


MDN’s Client, Customer and Stakeholder Engagement Program ‘digs deeper’ to establish what these parties think, need and want. More importantly, the program significantly assists in gaining a far better appreciation of how to improve service and build an even more responsive organisation.
