HCA Public Affairs Dragons’ Den

General information
Work on a real-life public affairs challenge and pitch your creative ideas in front of our PA Dragons! 

On Thursday 13th November, we will be holding our inaugural HCA Public Affairs Dragons’ Den, an informal, fun evening designed to get your creative juices flowing, which is aimed at HCA members with a PA background and those who are interested to know more about health policy and public affairs. The Dragons’ Den will bring together teams of healthcare communicators to devise innovative solutions to a real-life political challenge from a UK health charity.

Attendees will be briefed on the challenge by a senior patient group representative before working in small teams for 90 minutes to develop their own stand-out campaign. Tactics could include public affairs, campaigning, PR and media outreach, and patient advocacy – competitors are only limited by their imagination! They will pitch their campaign idea live to our PA Dragons. Points will be awarded for quality of PA insights, innovative tactics and entertaining pitches. The evening will close with a short awards ceremony to congratulate the winning team.

Although we anticipate that the greatest interest will come from in-house and agency PA/policy practitioners, we actively encourage others with an interest in learning more about public affairs to participate. Teams can include up to six members. All teams should include at least one team member who does not work full–time on public affairs or policy.
