Workings of Whitehall is a dynamic full day seminar delivered by current and former senior civils servants, giving participants the opportunity to learn about how the Civil Service functions, who the key figures in the policy making process are, and how business can effectively engage with Whitehall.

This seminar is ideal for anyone new to working in public affairs or government engagement in the private or not-for-profit sector, individuals new to the Civil Service, and those interfacing with central government from other public bodies.

· An overview of the Civil Service, The Cabinet Office and key policy makers

· A policy case study with an interactive group activity

· The role of HM Treasury
