Business Legitimacy – Staying on the “right” side of public opinion – and how to avoid controversy

The Open University in Scotland and Scottish Water are delighted to invite you to our twilight seminar: Business Legitimacy – Staying on the “right” side of public opinion – and how to avoid controversy. 

This event will be of particular interest to those in middle or senior leadership positions, in the public or private sectors, with an interest in influencing and maintaining internal and external, credible relationships.

Ever questioned what makes your business legitimate, or thought about how you navigate your business through challenges when its legitimacy is questioned? Want to stay on the “right” side of public opinion when facing adversity?

This highly thought provoking seminar will enable you to reflect on those complex questions in your own work environment and to share with others who have wrestled with the same dilemmas.
