Campaigning Essentials
This workshop takes you through the campaigning essentials. If you want your campaign to succeed, it is essential for you to have a good strategy ('if you fail to plan, you plan to fail' as they say). A campaign strategy does not have to be a lengthy, complex document. In fact a good campaign strategy is often no more than a couple of sides of A4.
