Panel Discussion

Coalition Building, Third Party Endorsements and Think Tanks

March 19, 2021 3:30 PM CET REGISTER

Any great advocacy efforts may fail due to nonexistent, weak, or fragmented coalitions. The prisoner’s dilemma known from game theory is still valid in this case, too. No issue exists in a vacuum. So is yours. Interim coalitions and strategic alliances are a determinant of the success of any advocacy effort. Mobilizing support for your aims among professional associations, think-tanks, pressure groups, refining it at the grass-roots level — all of it adds considerably to the credibility and legitimacy of your case. It can ultimately shape the environment in which you operate and predict an outcome with a high degree of certainty.

During the panel, the speakers will discuss:

Angeliki Eleftheriou Corporate Affairs and Public Relations Senior Manager at WIND Hellas
Samet Serttas Government Affairs Director Turkey and South East Europe at Herbalife Nutrition
