Webinar Series: The Art of Advocacy

WEBINAR SERIES

Here at CURA Strategies, we take pride in our uniquely integrated approach to public affairs—one that combines strategic communications with government relations—and our proven record of producing winning advocacy.

In that spirit, we’re excited to bring you “The Art of Advocacy,” a webinar series spanning summer and fall of 2020, offering a look at CURA’s “secret sauce” for our integrated approach to public affairs, with a focus on government relations and advocacy engagement.

We’ll share some of the insights and best practices we’ve learned over the years, highlighting tools that can help you produce positive outcomes in your own practice.

Sign up for a webinar individually, or for multiple in the series! They’re designed to stand alone, but altogether will equip you with a full toolbox of resources to accelerate your journey to become a seasoned public affairs professional!

AUGUST 25: THOUGHT LEADERSHIP IS DEAD: LONG LIVE THOUGHT PARTNERSHIP

Thought leadership is not the key to advocacy. Thought partnership is. As a popular African Proverb goes: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Take your organization further by asking big questions and building a community of people committed to finding the answer. That’s the heart of what we, at CURA, call thought partnership. What is it and how can you get it? Join our next free webinar to learn:

  1. The subtle but important difference between thought leadership and thought partnership
  2. Why thought partnership is a best approach to achieve your advocacy goals
  3. How to be an authentic thought partner
  4. Examples of thought partnership in action

CHOOSING YOUR BATTLES: A FRAMEWORK FOR DEVELOPING STRATEGIC ADVOCACY PRIORITIES

How do organizations prioritize their advocacy goals? CURA has created a methodology to quantify a traditionally ad hoc process often left to guesswork. Learn how we’ve applied this proprietary model to successfully advocate for Medicare coverage for opioid treatment programs and direct more than $35 million in federal research funding for cardiomyopathy.
