Public affairs consulting

Our approach to public affairs is based on the idea that effective engagement in politics should be based on what you know, not who you know – and that it is always better to come to the table with a solution rather than a problem.

These principles are the cornerstones of our public affairs strategies, which use an intellectually rigorous process and our experience of every level of EU, national, local and devolved government to ensure your organisation is making arguments and presenting solutions that will strike a chord with decision makers in Brussels, Westminster, Whitehall, local government, and the devolved city region.

The foundation of our work is comprehensive research, public policy and political risk analysis, political monitoring, and forecasting of the political environment – be it in Brussels, the United Kingdom or globally. We identify who can best influence the changes you wish to see and how best to inform their decision-making process.

We help hone your organisation’s messages to ensure relevancy to each audience they address, training them if necessary, to ensure they perform to the best of their ability. We believe our clients are their own best spokespeople and our strategies are based on ensuring we are addressing the relevant decision makers and conveying the most effective messages in a meaningful and constructive way that has clearly defined results and follow up activities, and that aligns with the political and policy priorities of the policy makers you wish to influence.

Our team is comprised of past press advisers, Government Special Advisers, political party staff, campaigners, national and trade journalists, and EU and UK civil servants – you will benefit from the honest advice of an expert team who will work to make your issues their own.

Our services include political, policy and regulatory monitoring and insights, stakeholder mapping and analysis, political sentiment analysis, message development and positioning and engagement programmes with high level policy makers.
