Event description
Join Mitchell Davidson, Ryerson Leadership Lab Expert Adviser for his second workshop: Navigating Complex Governments: How to Break Through

About this Event

Lab Days is a series of workshops run by the Ryerson Leadership Lab and delivered by its network of Visiting Global Fellows, Expert Advisers, and staff.

In these intimate sessions, working professionals gain key insights and applied learnings in leadership, communications and public policy, from leaders who have been on the front-lines of change-making.

Workshop : Navigating Complex Governments: How to Break Through

Date: November 29, 2019, 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Description: 60,000+ civil servants, 400 political staff, 76 Members of Provincial Parliament, and 28 Cabinet Ministers – not to mention an unmistakable Chief of Staff and Premier. Getting a decision made in the Ontario Government can be complicated, to say the least. Drawing on personal experience, this workshop will teach you how to navigate the impressive organizational chart that is government. Learn who to talk to, when to talk to them, and – most importantly - how to make your voice heard.

Who should attend: This is intended for anyone who is looking to lobby government, understand government decision making (students), advocate for change, or are business professionals who have to deal with large organizations on a regular basis.

Modalities: This session will be lecture based, and may include a powerpoint presentation, case study or interactive exercise.

Available Seats: 30
