Favourite Quote – “To bring about this transformational change, businesses must effectively and strategically identify, engage and energize all of their key stakeholders. No single business can hope to begin to be successful in the midst of the societal and environmental issues challenging the twenty-first century and beyond if they hold a narrow view of their company activities that includes only investors, customers and employees.
