It’s a lobbyist’s job to convince – a skill that is extremely useful in other professions as well. The toolbox and skill set of a professional lobbyist can help you reach your professional goals – get support for a project you are working on, and find the right arguments to communicate your point of view. Learn about stakeholder analysis, agenda setting, messaging and alliance building from a lobbyist and become your personal career advocate.
