    Have you a question, ostap?

    That's how most dictionaries define the word.

    Re: definition of a stakeholder given by a Brit

    A person, group, or organization that has direct or indirect stake in an organization because it can affect or be affected by the organization's actions, objectives, and policies. Key stakeholders in a business organization include creditors, customers, directors, employees, government (and its agencies), owners (shareholders), suppliers, unions, and the community from which the business draws its resources.
    What is stakeholder? definition and meaning

    It is also used in a wide sense nowadays and something of a vogue word in recent years- in the UK, Will Hutton plugged the idea of a stakeholder society, but others reject the idea.

    Re: definition of a stakeholder given by a Brit

    In my previous job (which was for a government department and therefore, theoretically, not profit-making), the last few years saw regular mentions of "stakeholders". We did not have investors nor did we make money so the word was mainly used to mean any person or body which had some kind of legitimate interest in how well we were doing.
