"Advancement" is known as the most mysterious job in politics.
From the big picture to the smallest details, the advance team plans every moment and every detail of the candidate's day to ensure their event is successful. And now, in the media-saturated world, candidates are subjected to even greater scrutiny. This means the work of an advance team is even more difficult than ever before.
The Campaign Advancement Workshop will demystify the work of advancement and offer you tools for working in a high-paced environment. Learn from faculty who've worked on every scale of advancement -- from press conferences and corporate conventions to star-studded product launches and presidential campaigns.
In the workshop, you will learn:
- The art of stagecraft
- Building an "advance" team
- Behind the scenes operations
- How to prepare to engage with the media
