Take your policy engagement to the next step – sign up for one of our online workshops

We have a small number of places available on our Building a Policy Influencing Strategy workshops on Friday 12th and Thursday 18th July.

What you will learn

These sessions are suitable for you if you have already made steps to engage with policymakers, and/or you have attended previous policy training workshops. Public affairs consultant and trainer Carys Davis will deliver both sessions, and they will enable you to:

  • develop key messages, supporting narratives and evidence for policymakers
  • identify and map your audience
  • gain insight into the channels available for influencing.

The sessions will be delivered via Zoom, from 9.30-4.30pm with 15-minute breaks in the morning and afternoon, and an hour away from screens for lunch from 12.30-1.30pm.

She has worked as a parliamentary researcher for two frontbench MPs, a policy adviser on the environment, food and rural affairs portfolio for a UK political party and was also the public affairs manager for the Financial Conduct Authority.
