Do you know what public affairs is? Have you considered how the politics could affect your work and business? Have you ever engaged with politicians locally or nationally?

Politics affects everything we do. From Brexit to bins, we all feel the impact of the decisions our elected representatives make in the town halls of Greater Manchester and in Westminster. It is vitally important that our voices are heard and that we positively influence these decision makers.

Grayling’s Politics 101 and introduction to Public Affairs will give you the oversight of the current political landscape in Greater Manchester and nationally and then introduce you to Public Affairs, highlighting the risks and opportunities that they could bring in 2019 and what you should be doing to mitigate them.
