How to be influent tomorrow in Brussels?
Lobbying and influence techniques will experience profound changes in the next two years. It will not be an evolution but a revolution!
This revolution originates in the growing complexity of the decision-making process (very important reform of comitology); in the loss of influence of trade associations contrary to NGOs which gain influence; in the absence of a political European project which strengthens the technical dimension of the EU.
European lobbying will deeply transform: more anticipation will be necessary as well as proactive strategies involving industries and NGOs. Communication and press will become essential elements of European lobbying. More than ever, lobbying will be a complex profession combining a strong legal expertise with global networking, leadership and excellent communication skills.
