Seminars and Training
Stratagem has delivered over 200 training sessions in and around the themes of government, lobbying, local campaigning, responding to consultations and related topics to a wide range of diverse organisations in the private, public and community and voluntary sectors.
We have a particular reputation for our imaginative range of training services and supportive approach to enable organisations to understand how politics and policy work, thereby bringing about change. This helps those who attend our training to manage and develop their own advocacy.
An example of successful Stratagem training is our 'Art of Lobbying' seminar. This session focuses on strategic lobbying, both imparting information and empowering participants to pull together the skeleton of a lobbying plan for a particular initiative at central and local levels. We illustrate this with the use of case studies of successful examples of lobbying in Northern Ireland and cross-border and will then ask participants to work in groups to come up with a basic campaign for an initiative of importance to them. This is an extremely interactive session with lots of feedback and group work encouraged.
