In this webinar, Kate will discuss: 

* What public affairs is 

* How to decide whether public affairs is a good investment for your charity 

* How to identify and use high-profile champions 

* What skills you need (and don’t need) 

* How to assess the impact of your investment 

* How to pick the right battles 

There will be time for your questions, too!
