Stakeholder Engagement Summit 2024

8 October, 2024
Manchester, UK

About the event



After the resounding success of the Stakeholder Engagement Summit 2023, we are delighted to announce the return of this essential gathering for professionals dedicated to advancing stakeholder engagement practices.

We are excited to present the Stakeholder Engagement Summit 2024, themed around "Best Practice in Stakeholder Engagement."

This year's event will deliver insightful discussions and practical strategies covering the stages of the stakeholder engagement process.

Our lineup of talks will explore the core components of stakeholder engagement., from defining the purpose of engagement to executing engagements that foster meaningful connections and build positivity. 

And since it's an election year, a session will be held on "Stakeholder Engagement in an Election Year", offering reconnaissance of the world of electoral politics and its impact on the more sedate practice of stakeholder management.

Join us in Manchester, on October 8th, as we continue to champion the evolution of stakeholder relations and drive positive change within organisations and communities alike!
