Dods is a political information, publishing, events and communications business operating in both the UK and Europe. Dods produces a wide variety of events which facilitate face-to-face engagement, sharing best practice and shaping and delivering policy. These include policy conferences, award ceremonies and bespoke strategic platforms to bring policy-makers and stakeholders together in an environment that allows deliberation, dialogue and collaboration.


The House magazine

The House, Parliament's very own magazine delivered to every MP and peer directly, includes columns, diaries and reviews from MPs and peers.

Westminster Explained

Westminster Explained is the training division of Dods and the leading private sector provider of training on Parliament, government and policy. Over the past 12 years we’ve built a reputation for delivering engaging, effective and interactive training courses to individuals, teams and whole organisations across government and the wider public sector.

Westminster Briefing

Westminster Briefing is part of Dods Parliamentary Communications, Europe’s leading political information, public affairs and policy communication specialist.

Established in 2003, Westminster Briefing runs half-day and full-day events covering all areas of public policy, from education to health and criminal justice.

Our briefings are aimed at providing delegates with an understanding of the practical implications of legislative changes and policy interventions. We attract leading figures from the Government, the wider public sector and industry to speak at our events, which are attended by a mix of policy makers and practitioners.

We support individuals, teams and organisations to work through healthcare improvement projects by providing the necessary framework, learning modules, tools and resources to make healthcare improvement simple. The programme also includes an exclusive route to publication in the BMJ Quality Improvement Reports journal: a fantastic way to showcase work being done by both individuals and organisations.
