With our unique consortium of leading academic and private sector partners we have developed an exclusive, two-day masterclass for policy makers and policy sector professionals looking to better understand digital influence and develop new analytical skills.

Participants will learn how to develop resilient influencing strategies, understand and use new analytical methods and tools, have better insight into how digital influence works and how to assess its value for individuals and organisations.

Over this two-day, interactive online course, participants will learn from leading experts in digital influence from governments, universities and the private sector.

We offer a uniquely varied and tailored learning experience with opportunities for engagement with other learners, professional and peer networking and co-creation of solutions that can be taken into the workplace.
