"Traditionally, organisations have recognised both internal stakeholders in their business, such as internal service users and providers, staff, colleagues, management, board members and shareholders, and external stakeholders such as customers suppliers and contractors. Less obvious in some cases are the wider community within which the organisation operates. Local and national Government bodies, local communities, extended families of employees and local industries can all considered to be stakeholders. All of these groups need to be appraised, managed and nurtured to some degree if the organisation is to prosper. Who should attend:
