Free event: What does #GE2015 mean for you?

Written by Rhiannon Hughes

How can charities engage with a new government?

We would love you to join us for our free breakfast workshop so you’re ready to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the first 100 days of a new government.

The first few months following a general election are a crucial time to engage and influence the new administration, decision-makers and MPs. Policies will be thrashed out and a comprehensive spending review is on the horizon.

Our Stand Engage team are experts at creating and implementing public affairs and stakeholder engagement strategies, building on many years’ experience working in Westminster, Whitehall and the voluntary sector.

If you work in public affairs or communications for a third sector organisation, then this is definitely an event for you.

  • Understand why the first 100 days are so important
  • Navigate the new administration effectively
  • Get your campaigns on the radar
  • Engage and influence the right people at the right time
  • Identify and engage the newly elected rising stars
  • Form lasting relationships with new Ministers and MPs
  • Integrate public affairs, communications and fundraising
  • Work together with other charities

The workshop will be held in both Peterborough and London

Peterborough: 26th May, 8.30am-10.00am, Stand Agency, Peterscourt, City Road, Peterborough, PE1 1SA

London: 28th May, 8.30am-10.00am, Stand Agency, 17-21 Emerald Street, London, WC1N 3QN
