With the General Election moving swiftly before us, I am devoting a number of podcasts and blogs to the types of skills that any budding politician will need in order to succeed and be elected. In this week’s Superstar Communicator Podcast, I share top tips on how ‘Meeting and Greeting’ your local electorate well, impacts on your success.
In the podcast, I share tips including:
- Be fully prepared
- Know exactly who you are going to be seeing for each visit
- Modify your message to be appropriate for your audience
- Anticipate what local issues might be for your different audiences
- Use these meeting and greeting situations as great media opportunities.
