Event Management

Do you have a product to launch? A report to promote? Stakeholders to meet? Positif has considerable experience of managing events that have a clear political or policy dimension. Our events are well attended and cover a wide range of topics and issues. These include:

  • Events targeted at a political or policy audience such as receptions and seminars - we have a good track record in delivering interesting and well-attended events at the National Assembly for Wales
  • Large scale lobbying - helping you utilise your members or supporters to make an impact.
  • Conferences with a political or policy edge - focusing on specific policy areas or debate on topical matters
  • Tables at political dinners, connecting you with opinion formers as your guests - we are the Wales-based agency with the most consistent presence at Welsh party political dinners
  • Stakeholder management - focussed events as part of our coalition building work

We can advise and help you draw up your guest list, manage the logistics and arrange guest speakers. On the day of the event we will be on hand to ensure that you get the most out of your event and we will also help you follow-up with politicians and stakeholders who may need further information or one-to-one briefings.

Please contact Susan Bowen, Director of Operations, Training and Events, for more information on our political event management services.

Our Work: Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2014

Objective:

To introduce Parkinson's UK's new Country Director for Wales; to raise awareness about the charity's work in Wales and to provide networking opportunities with political representatives.

Outcomes:

We organised an event at the Pierhead building, Cardiff Bay for Parkinson’s UK Cymru to launch Parkinson’s Awareness Week in Wales. 

This event was an ideal opportunity for Barbara Locke to introduce herself as the new Country Director for Wales.  Eighteen Assembly Members attended the event and met branch members and supporters and highlighted the service provision needs in their local areas.   Local choir, Cantorion Creugiau sang an especially composed song at the event, written by two people with Parkinson’s, who have put their thoughts on paper and are sharing their experiences. The choir was introduced by the world famous soprano, Elin Manahan Thomas.

Following the event a Statement of Opinion was raised which Called on Welsh Government to improve understanding amongst health and social care professionals about people with Parkinson’s getting medication on time and having the option to self-medicate, if they are able to.
