Influencing and shaping policies can be challenging in the digital world, where online impact is often hard to measure.

As this year’s EU institutional changeover takes shape, public affairs professionals in Brussels will be looking at engaging with new interlocutors in the European Parliament and the European Commission. Join this roundtable to hear more about how to engage with your organisation’s key EU interlocutors — ethically and effectively.

Creating trust between an organisation and its stakeholders is one of the primary goals of communication and public affairs departments.

Join us for a discussion and insights based on a concrete example from the food sector.
