Election Fever: how can think tanks make the most of the UK General Election

Come along to our event in partnership with WonkComms looking at how think tanks can make the most of the 2015, how to sell their manifestos, and what they can and can't do in light of the lobbying act.

Event starts at 4pm on 26 November 2014 at Centre for Cities, 59-65 Upper Ground, London, SE1 9PQ

With just 6 months until polling day, the next election looms large on the horizon. Think tanks can’t ignore it and business-as-usual for research led organisations seems impossible in such a politically charged atmosphere. What should we do? What are we allowed to do (particularly in light of the Lobbying Act)? And how can Comms teams help their Wonks to get it done? Bite the ballot, don’t spoil your paper. Join us in person, via live stream or follow #WonkComms for ideas, opinions, debate & discussion on how can think tanks make the most of the UK General Election.
