Takshashila’s Public Policy Foundations course for Edelman India comes to a conclusion.

Takshashila successfully concluded an executive training programme for the public affairs team of Edelman India in August 2014. Takshashila developed a bespoke training programme titled Public Policy Foundations for Credible Advocacy for Edelman India’s public affairs staff than was conducted between June and August 2014. The training programme was designed to provide a firm understanding of the fundamentals of public policy and governance and enable participants to apply them in their professional lives and become more effective advocates of change in public affairs.

By introducing economic reasoning for public policy, this executive programme prepared participants to deal with different levels of governments and international organisations. Participants gained the necessary skills to engage, negotiate with and manage government departments that businesses have to increasingly deal with. Participants also learnt how to engage multiple stakeholders in public affairs and how to leverage them to achieve superior outcomes.

There were a total of 24 participants in this programme and over 18 hours of training took place. Conducted via telepresence, the course was tailored to work with the schedules of working professionals at Edelman India.
