Specifically designed for consultants, this workshop will provide your team a grounding in public affairs, both generally and from the perspective of companies and trade associations. Learn what organizations need and expect from an external partner.
Featured Topic & Speakers
When someone says “public affairs,” are you comfortable with the term and explaining it to team members? Can you anticipate what companies or trade associations want when they hire you for public affairs work? Our 101 workshop will cover the basics, allowing you to better understand and serve your clients and partners:
- Understanding public affairs, giving substance and specificity to a term and field that’s often misunderstood and underappreciated
- Speaking the language of the client: communicating plans, progress and impact they can understand and use
- Lawmaking and rulemaking: Learn the basics of federal legislative and executive functions, focusing on Congressional and agency process for making laws, rules and regulations
- Learning from senior public affairs executives at major corporations and associations about what they look for when structuring RFPs, running a selection process, hiring a consulting and working with that consultant once hired
