Party Conference Season is just around the corner, and with Brexit looming large over every major party, we’re in for an explosive autumn. If you’re gearing up for Conference, don’t miss our next webinar.
Party Conferences give MPs and party leaders the chance to announce new policies and strategies, and debate key issues that matter to their members and the country as a whole. They also give you an unrivalled opportunity to lobby MPs and the party’s constituents directly.
But with so much activity packed into just four days – not including the long nights – how do you know where to start? How can you get the most out of the Conferences without missing anything that matters to you?
Our next webinar – hosted by political and communications supremo Lionel Zetter, author of Lobbying, the Art of Political Persuasion – will guide you through Party Conference season, revealing how you can get the most out of every day and the biggest return on your time.
Webinar: Making the most of Party Conferences
Date: Wednesday 12 September 2018
Time: 11:00 – 11:30 BST
Lionel is a former President of the CIPR and former Chairman of the Government Affairs Group. He is the current Chair of the PRCA Public Affairs Group and has been attending Conservative Party Conferences since 1974. Lionel is also a regular attender of Labour, Lib Dem and SNP conferences.
Altogether he has attended over 100 party conferences and when we asked for his top tip for conference, he said: ‘It is all about pacing yourself. If you are going to do morning events, and stay late in the bar in the evening, it is important to have some down time in the middle of the day – even if that means sneaking back to your hotel for a siesta!’
