On Wednesday 13 July 2023, the closing event for the second season of the Stakeholders.news magazine took place in Madrid at the headquarters of UNE, the Spanish Association for Standardisation. Presented by Javier Peris, Business&Co.

During the event, roundtables were organised to look back at some of the key articles the magazine has published during this season, including on issues such as changes around the workplace in the coming decades, resilient organisations and ‘TecnoTransformation’.
Javier Peris then awarded the ‘Stakeholders.news 2023’ to Marc Berghmans, PM² Ambassador, who received the award on behalf of the Centre of Excellence in PM².
