Corporate Diplomacy in action

In general, corporate diplomacy is defined as the ability to advance corporate interests by creating alliances and reputation with external key figures including governments, analysts, media and non-governmental organizations (NGOs / NGO) and thus to implement business objectives efficiently and successfully.

Relations with external key figures have to be personal relations. Corporate Diplomacy is the dialogue on the highest decision levels in the private sector, the public sector and civil society organizations. It conveys the methodology that empowers to make stakeholder collaboration work, face global challenges, and secure competitiveness while operating in a sustainable way.
