Deon Binneman presenting at the Institute for Internal Auditors Conference 8 May 2016 – a Stakeholder Reputation Management Overview

Dear Colleague,

I am now live on Youtube: Deon Binneman presenting at the Institute for Internal Auditors Conference 8 May 2016 – a Stakeholder Reputation Management Overview.

An Organization derives its reputation from the way it’s performance, actions and behavior is…
