Despite seeming remote and far-off in Brussels, European Union (EU) decision-making is extremely important and impacts each and every one of us. Given that almost 70% of all legislation comes from Brussels - and affects the daily lives of every consumer, organisation and business - the value of using and shaping the system has never been more vital.
It is crucial to understand the process and the interplay of institutions and actors, but the system is not the impenetrable mystery that it is often portrayed to be in the media. EU decision-making is in fact relatively open and viewpoints/inputs are genuinely sought from different actors. Policy and legislation is also relatively easy to shape. Having an influence, and achieving results, is often more easy than in the national context.
We offer several training courses and workshops - tailored to meet your needs and current level of knowledge/familiarity - in order to lead you through the EU maze. These include:
These are designed to help you understand the EU decision-making system and explain how to shape this, not just follow what comes from Brussels. On the back of this, we can produce a tailored EU policy, regulation and compliance guide. This will cover where you are now and provide a roadmap of activities based on policy developments and your business needs.
We have an extensive track-record of helping Governments, Trade Associations, Blue chips companies, Scale-ups, Law Firms and Accountancy firms in improving their communications, understanding the European Union (EU) decision-making process and delivering concrete results.
