Female Leader Conversations Feature - Sheena Ireland

Specialists in Communications Director Sheena Ireland shares her practical tips gleaned from her experience in advising Cabinet Ministers and high profile CEOs. Sheena said, "As we have seen for some years now, ministers rotate more frequently than they used to. So, while you must get the Minister(s) responsible for your area of work up to speed on your issues, you can’t solely focus on them. Because with ministerial reshuffles being a normal occurrence, you could be briefing a new minister sooner than you think. If you’ve spent some time getting your messages out to the range of parliamentarians, it increases the likelihood that you’ll get a head start on briefing the next Minister.

It’s also important to invest time in knowing and building relationships with relevant backbenchers. See what committees they are on and what ‘friends of’ groups they are part of. If the committee or group is relevant to you, do your research on the MP and reach out. Engage them by letting them know how an issue affects their constituency, or how you help their constituency. Find an emotional connection."
