Course description

LOBBYLITE is an in-person, introductory workshop that allows your team to come together to learn, review and strategise how they can begin working in this space. 


Over four hours, our experts will teach the fundamentals of government relations: how it works, how to bring government relations into your day-to-day roles and using it to reach your long term goals. 


This course is developed for those who want to build in-house capability and take their stakeholder engagement to a new level. It can also be used as professional development for boards and governance teams looking for a strategy reset. To top it all off, you’ll leave with your very own personalised startup strategy ready for implementation.

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."
