Communicators are the rhetorical muscle behind the lobbyists who walk the halls of government.  They create and shape the messages for media, the public, and stakeholders. In this workshop, you’ll hear from press secretaries and communications directors who will talk about a typical day:

  • What they read to stay abreast;
  • How they work with media, both proactively, and reactively;
  • How politics impacts their work and decision-making; and
  • How they work with allied communicators and opponents.
