“People Power: Meetings, Relationships and Collaboration in Effective Public-Policy Advocacy”

This workshop will focus on the human dimension of organized, strategic public-policy advocacy. With heavy emphasis on participant interaction and sharing of personal experiences in lobbying, the session will deal with the following themes:

*  What do we know about the “human” dimension of influence, persuasion and decision-making?
*  Strategic Meetings: How to make meetings with government officials more productive.
*  How to develop and sustain critical relationships among those in government.
*  Coalitions, Collaborations and Public Engagement: some things old and some things new.

This session will be hosted by Sean Moore, Principal of Advocacy School, a 1976 graduate of – and a frequent lecturer at – Carleton’s SPPA and one of Canada’s most experienced practitioners, writers and teachers in public–policy advocacy. (http://advocacyschool.org/instructor/sean-moore ).

This event is being graciously sponsored by Sean Moore, Carleton Centre for Community Innovation and The School of Public Policy and Administration – Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership.
