Select Committee Training

Select Committees are highly influential bodies within the House of Commons, being called before one can be a great opportunity to raise the profile of your organisation or issue. But preparation is essential.


Over recent years Select Committees have taken on a more investigative stance, holding regular inquiries and calling witnesses to give evidence before them.

Ambitious MPs are actively using the platform given to them as members or chairs of Select Committees to raise their own profile and generate media coverage, so the dangers of miscommunication are only increasing.

Even accomplished communicators can stumble under the intense questioning and high pressure environment of a Select Committees, which is why intense preparation is not only advised, it is essential.
