"While I am a lobbying veteran, the workshop and book provided me with a fresh perspective on advocacy. Mr. Guyer's clear structure and methodology for an effective lobbying campaign added to my own effectiveness with the legislature contributing to me being ranked one of the five best lobbyists in the state of Florida."
Desinda Wood Carper
Senior Legislative Advocate (former)
Florida League of Cities

Guide to State Legislative Lobbying 3rd ed. is now available in Kindle edition and expanding to other e-readers.

Changing face of labor. The recent Chicago seminar underscored to me the changing face of union lobbying. Locals have attended despite at times nationals' opposition to non-union training. The locals' advocates learn collegially the same skills as those with whom they compete in the state legislature. Check our attendees list to see representative unions.

Mr. Guyer will provide 2-16 hour private on-site workshops customized to your issue presented at a time and place of your choosing. Previous custom-seminar clients are a Who's Who of state and national groups.

Debra Hurston, Exec Director MN Chiropractic Assoc

Mr. Guyer presents one pro bono training per year to a 501(c)(3) charity. Such groups have included mental health, sexual assault survivors, drop-out prevention, others. Contact him if your group would like to be his 2015 pro bono training.
