Inside an Election War Room: Hands on lessons in rapid response
with Ian Capstick, Social Impact Strategist and Founder of MediaStyle
In American and Canadian politics, the “war room” has taken on near mythical status. This "room" is the central location where the heart of a political campaign is being run. It is made up of a complex set of departments that operate just once every four years.
Equipped with the technical means to gather information, plan strategy, and direct activities for the entire political campaign, the war room campaign teams use simulations and role-playing in advance of the writ period to get ready for a national election.
The war room is central, the single location which serves as the point of coordination during an election. But yet most of the general public know very little about what goes on inside this "room".
Join Ian Capstick, Social Impact Strategist and Founder of MediaStyle, to explore the function and effect that these command centers have had on elections. Spend the day taking a look at what goes on on the inside, exploring the organization and operations of a “war room” and practicing the skills of “rapid response”.
If you are interested in what goes on on the inside during a campaign, you won't want to miss this workshop.
