Webinar on Lobbying
Brussels is the lobby capital of Europe: several thousand industry lobbyists target lawmakers there, including in the financial sector. Hundreds of people are employed directly or indirectly to lobby Brussels lawmakers on behalf of the financial services industry.
Lobbyists try to influence law before, during and even long after it is made, using a variety of techniques and tricks of the trade. Want to know how this exactly works? In our next webinar, Joost Mulder, Head of Public Affairs at Finance Watch, who was a lobbyist for the financial industry in his former life, invites you to have a look inside the Brussels business. He will explain what – in his eyes – makes a good lobbyist, and how Finance Watch carries out its public interest lobbying.
Date: 31 May 2013, 12pm-1pm.
