What participants say

Before the session, our company was lost. We weren't able to recognise when our government relations were going good or going bad, let alone understand the reasons behind the outcomes. Thanks to Holly and the LOBBYLITE course, we now have much more clarity around our mistakes and how we can turn our failures into successes moving forward. It personally opened my eyes to how simple government relations can be with the right advice and resources, and strongly recommend the course to anyone who wants to engage with the government in an effective way.

James Koo Former Chief Executive, Niesh

Holly is an outstanding government relations consultant. She has the understanding of how to navigate government that only comes from experience and tenacity. Her advice is practical, easy to understand and her bubbly personality makes it a joy to work with her

Vivek Kumar Chief Executive, Quicksense

A fast paced, valuable, engaging and pragmatic workshop. Great to have a clear strategy for 2019 locked and loaded. ‘Central Government on Steroids’. Highly recommended.

Erin Wansbrough Chief Executive, SODA Inc

I would highly recommend the LOBBYLITE course! Even with my considerable experience working in the government and local government space, I still found that I learnt heaps! In particular, the make up and organisational and operational structure of our government. Understanding this can be quite powerful in so far as knowing what the internal communications channels look like and knowing the roles and responsibilities of the support staff…. I enjoyed Holly's delivery style which is relaxed but frank, this keeps things interesting and high energy from start to finish, without it dragging on. Well done, keep up the great work team!

Lee Timutimu Chief Executive, Arataki Trails

The LOBBYLITE course contains critical information about how to influence government thinking and direction that affects you, your business, your lifestyle, or your vocation. Having your voice heard is essential and LOBBYLITE taught us who to reach out to, who to canvas, which party or parties to talk to, when to start doing this, and theory and with a practical session where you literally start planning your first lobbying! LOBBYLITE is taught in a short 4-hour session and you are literally entertained and surprised every minute of it with the dynamite Holly Bennett. If you get the chance to attend a LOBBYLITE course...take it!

Andrew Johnson Founder, Respondly

The LOBBYLITE training was just what the team needed to break the barriers to how to connect and communicate to Government. The presentation, tools and information shared with our businesses was so empowering. We developed an engagement plan to set up how we were going to develop partnerships and understand the political arena. Holly’s professional and fun personality drew the team in more and more and they became very interested in how the government actually works. As the Co-director/Owners of Cultivate Tribe and Hokioi Builders we recommend the training to all groups. I can see how this can support businesses from many angles.
