In this workshop, you will learn the practical political strategy and PR tools that can help you:
- Become a leader capable of guiding your project to its highest level.
- Communicate in a meaningful and authentic way, and build lasting relationships with your public.
- Set yourself as an important player in your local and regional political environment, to make yourself heard and defend your business’ mission and vision.
Political strategy as a discipline has been around for a long time. From ancient civilizations’ brilliant strategists to modern-day strategists, political strategy has been able for thousands of years to establish, maintain and protect human societies. Although political strategy is usually used in political settings, it has a set of deep principles and ideas which, when applied to any area in life, take everything to the next level.
I. Work on yourself: you are the key to your success (communication skills, writing skills, critical principles of good leadership).
II. Public relations: it’s not just about image, it’s a lot about relationships (you and your public, social consciousness, community organizing, group building, support).
III. Make yourself heard: your growth is subject to your political environment and how you interact with it (how to speak to public officials, setting an agenda).
