European Office

Senior-level roundtable
15 November 2017
12:45–14:15 CET
EU District, Brussels

Lobbying on controversial or politically heated issues is never easy, and even agreeing on what may be classed as controversial is becoming more and more difficult.

Featured Topic & Speakers

In this roundtable, we will explore:

  • What is considered ‘controversial’ in today’s advocacy world?
  • Should individual lobbyists rely on facts, emotions or values?
  • Becoming a personal target when lobbying tough issues, and what to do about it
