Getting decision-makers to prioritize action aligning with your agenda

You have a problem that needs attention, but in amongst all the priorities how do you get decision makers to prioritise action for your needs? This training focuses on strategic influencing, covering the skills, competencies, and practicalities of advocacy work. It will focus on the “Do’s and Don’ts” of advocacy, the relationship of advocacy strategies to tactics, show how to frame up advocacy objectives, pitch asks in the context of the discourse, understand when and how to compromise, and unpack specific examples for learning purposes. The training will include authentic advocacy examples bringing in guest speakers to share their experiences, backstories and lessons learned as a learning tool. It will provide a safe environment to learn and experience the realpolitik of advocacy work.
