This 60-minute webinar will take you through simple and effective strategies and frameworks to help you embed government engagement into your organisation. This will ensure you have the ability to accelerate your political campaigns, advocacy and engagement, and improve public policy outcomes for Australia.

Our expert presenter Neil Pharaoh will use leading policy and funding examples to guide you through

  • why it’s important to focus on government relations and how to focus the whole organisation.
  • the role every team member can play to develop successful relationships.
  • what elements, strategies, structure and expertise are essential to developing advocacy, engagement and campaigns.
  • what you can do to make sure your policy issue remains relevant and practical.

You will be given tangible tips that you can immediately implement on the ‘how to’ of making government relations a staple of your team, how to apply structures to make government engagement easier, and look to how best to frame your argument and run a simple, grassroots campaign for social outcomes in a Federal election year.

The importance of engaging all members in your team in government relations is the focus of this webinar, with particular attention on the upcoming Federal election, and how a little bit of leg work and preparations now can reap substantial policy rewards for social purpose organisations into the future.
