Public Affairs Action Day – 30 November

Conference season is upon us once again. And boy does our workshop at last year’s Public Affairs Agenda two day extravaganza seem like an age ago. This year we’re partnering with the good folks at Dods on their European Public Affairs Action Day to be held on the 30 November at the Renaissance Hotel (it is a day rather than a summit this year, but the hotel remains the same).

We shall be hosting one of the workshop sessions, which will be structured in the form of a panel discussion complete with Q&A. Our panel is entitled “To Twitter or not to Twitter: the use of digital tools in public affairs” and will run in the second morning slot from approximately 11.30 until lunch. Appearing on our panel will be:

  • Alexander Alvaro MEP talking about the use of the internet by Members of the European Parliament in and after the election campaign earlier this year.
  • Pat Cleary our SVP of digital public affairs from our Washington DC office talking about the use of twitter in advocacy campaigns on the basis of a recent piece of work he did for the Fix Housing First coalition.
  • Mark Redgrove. Mark heads up communication at manufacturing industry association Orgalime. He shall speak about how his organisation is using the internet to support advocacy in a Brussels based context

Registrations are not yet open, but should be soon here. We hope you can join us.

Read all about it: digital public affairs in print

If you’re looking for an overview of our (my) world view in terms of how digital and public affairs fit together, then have a read of this article. Originally available in the “strategy and practice” (!) section of the print version of the online movers and shakers and events website (e.g. it’s a bit like “Hello” magazine for Brussels). The publishers have kindly agreed to allow us to put a pdf version up on this blog.

Thoughts, reflections and rotten vegetables; all are most welcome in the comments section of this post.

Senay on Obama and the internet in Paris

For those who fancy a reason to go to Paris for the day, we have received word that FH global CEO Dave Senay is to speak on the successful use of the internet by US Presidential nominee Barack Obama on 30 June in Paris. A subject close to our heart on this blog, as you may have noted.

Caroline Marchetti and Cyrille Arcamone from FH Paris, who are organising in collaboration with the association of Sciences-Po and, would be most happy to see all those interested in digital and politics turn up for an evening of debate.

Further details on registration can be found in the thumbnail below.
