Delivered by external and internal experts, these sessions can be taken in isolation based on your specific needs or as a series providing the opportunity to gain a rounded view of what policy impact is, how to measure it and the tools and techniques needed to achieve it.


Government Analysts and Academics: Bridging the Gap by Nigel Campbell

In this session Nigel will share his experiences as a senior civil servant and some of the policies he worked on. Nigel will also be identifying how and why members of the academic community might wish to consider engaging government analysts as part of their research.
