Stakeholder engagement

Corporate responsibility is about improving the impact of a business on society - your stakeholders. This course looks at how to engage those stakeholders effectively.

ILM Recognised ProviderEngaging with stakeholders helps to:

  • Build trust in your business

  • Mitigate risks by knowing what concerns those around you

  • Identify opportunities for doing things better

You made a potentially dull subject enjoyable, interactive and fun!
