Communication is an integral part of business conduct as it allows all stakeholders to understand what the business is about. Internally, people need to understand how they fit in and what is expected of them. Whilst externally, it helps to educate people on how the business (or products/services) may fit into their life.

For the purposes of this assignment you should also choose one core business as a case study and provide relevant examples to support your thinking and analysis.
