WHAT DRIVES ME
“Government relations is no longer about just knowing people at the top. Increasingly, it’s about developing systematic, fact-based campaigns using a full range of tools, including digital and social media. Governments know it’s not just about good ideas, it’s about building consensus and animating the people whose opinions matter to them.
What drives me is using these tools to spearhead groundbreaking changes to government legislation, policy and practices at all levels—even when the odds are stacked against transformation.”
