Learn from the best.

Learn how to run your own advocacy campaign from the best in the business.

We offer one-on-one or group instruction for professionals. Goddard Gunster Institute class sizes are kept small to encourage in-depth discussion and questions.

Your session will include one or more senior members of Goddard Gunster’s staff, plus guest speakers to guide your instruction. Guest speakers rotate but often include seasoned journalists, pollsters, and industry experts from inside the Beltway.
