Gambling eh? Not the first thing that would have come to my mind. For me, the term “stakeholder” holds many meanings and usually focuses on the individuals who benefit (in any way) from the creation and growth of a project, task, transaction or interaction. The term “stakeholder” can mean…
  • Customers
  • Staff or employees
  • The broader community
  • Investors/Creditors (yay…)
  • The environment
