DO SET CLEAR GOALS
• DON’T just defend your side of the story: explain opposing points of view,
• DO give accurate information. That is what will build you trust with them.
• DO be transparent and honest.
• DON’T be adversarial or confrontational: decisions are made consensually.
• DON’T be aggressive – it will always backfire on you.
• DO provide solutions, not just problems
• DO be sensitive to cultural norms: lobbying is done differently in different countries.
What works in the UK might be offensive in Latvia; what works in Italy, won’t work in Finland.
• DO think about language problems: make sure your interlocutor speaks the language you do.
• DO research your audience.
• DON’T be naive: show that you understand where they are coming from – that budgets are
limited, transparency is essential
• DO show them that you understand the divergence of opinions – but know your facts, your
evidence, your science. MAKE STRONG ARGUMENTS!
• DO pull emotional heart strings: There is a lot of empathy with NGOs - Build relationships: the messenger can be as important as the message
