During the COVID-19 crisis, the pace of change in government and politics has moved quickly as our politicians responded to the need to make big decisions in a short space of time. Organisations have been challenged with the need to respond quickly to decisions which may affect them.

This is particularly the case locally given the dynamics of decisions made in London, the politics of devolution as well as the impact and influence of the shared border with the Republic of Ireland, and how these factors influence the way our parties respond.

As MLAs continuing to manage the implications of the pandemic and look towards the ending of the Brexit transition period, join us for our free online training session on: Back to Business? Engaging with the Assembly after lockdown

This session will be held on Tuesday 15 September 2020, 11:00-12:00, and delivered by Stratagem Director Gráinne Walsh.
