Learn how to develop a place-based approach to understanding and connecting with local communities

Businesses have an impact on the local communities in which they operate. Understanding and engaging with these communities is crucial to identifying key local stakeholders and the most pressing local issues affecting the community, working with them to co-design the best solutions. All of which help businesses to build trust, whilst ensuring that they are tackling the most business-relevant issues in their local communities, and making a measurable difference.
