Working with government can be confronting and confusing for even the most seasoned operators. Businesses, not-for-profits and local governments work with professional lobbyists but meet with the wrong people at the wrong time.
This means local communities miss out on valuable infrastructure, social programs and resources.
Getting the pitch right means finding a way to work with decision makers to get what you want - how to ask, when to ask, who to ask it of and most importantly, what the ask should look and sound like - credible and authentic.
Advocacy School is for organisations needing a road map but not a lobbyist. The resources are designed to help to solve your problems – securing change and building stronger government relationships.
