Engage is New Zealand’s leading government relations education organisation, with a reputation for building lobbying skills that get results.
Traditionally seen as a tool reserved for the elite, Engage brings the power of effective government relations to the people. We do this by offering education on what government relations is, and by teaching the skills, strategies and mechanisms to get results from lobbying. We are also proud to offer New Zealand’s first ever educational course on effective advocacy - the Government Relations Nanodegree.
An accessible, open and engaged democracy for everyone.
To educate and inform, not compete and conceal

Educating New Zealanders to become their own best advocate.
By empowering you, we can help New Zealand maintain a healthy democracy. We also want to grow the expertise in government relations and cultivate the next generation of open-minded leaders.
