Join us for an exclusive career development workshop where we will bust all the myths about lobbying and find out from the industry’s finest what is, and what isn't, Public Affairs consulting.
CONTENT: Whether you are considering a career path in Public Affairs, wish to advance your expertise in interest representation or simply want to learn about a fresh perspective, this is the right workshop for you.
Ivana will share tips for entering the industry and give you a sense of how a successful public affairs consultant’s day-to-day looks like.
