" Know to act when, where and how
" Be ready for compromise
" No dirty tricks
" No personal rewards
Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Cargill Europe, Middle East & Africa, Mechelen Abstract
Business and government - two worlds. Lobbying as education. Public policy frameworks and political frameworks. Lobbying in different political systems - as part of democratic and undemocratic processes. Understanding the immoveable forces; bravery inside the business. Understand the system you are operating in; decision mapping; compare/contrast EU/US and other global examples; the role of money; the role of impact assessments; lobbying and the corporate brand/corporate responsibility - the need for alignment. Lobbying in the age of transparency - the need for a two-way process in democracies.
