Dr2 Consultants is organizing a dedicated EU Affairs Training on 25 June, which reflects on the outcome of the European Parliamentary elections on 23-26 May. During the one-day training, we will provide you with an insight to the set-up of the new European Parliament, the forthcoming changes in the European Commission and we will give you an overview of how Public Affairs will be affected in the coming years. Furthermore, by demonstrating how to maximize the efficiency and outcomes of your engagement with decision-makers, our training will help you to effectively define and represent the interests of your business at EU-level.

During lunch, a Member of the European Parliament will elaborate on his/hers activities and experiences in the European Parliament followed by a Q&A with the participants (tbc).
