Strategic support services
In addition to political risk analysis, we also help clients understand how to use political information to inform corporate strategy. Our aim is to help clients turn political knowledge into a competitive advantage.
We provide senior counsel to business leaders and corporate strategists, helping them to set political intelligence within its much wider commercial context.
Our strategic support services include:
Messaging and corporate profile
We help clients to distil and structure the messages that will help to deliver strategic goals. This can include building a targeted messaging framework that can be deployed across media.
Top tier advisory
Our team and broader network of consultants have acted as senior decision makers, legislators and advisers within the British government, European Parliament, FTSE 100 companies and leading think tanks.
We’ve provided political strategic advice to C-Suite leaders and corporate affairs teams for some of the leading brands in the world, including Starbucks, Royal Dutch Shell, Centrica, Balfour Beatty, the Madison Square Garden Company and Sainsburys.
Our senior advisors, including former UK government ministers, work with C-Suite and senior leaders to maximise their political understanding and skills. This can include preparation for key projects, events such as committee appearances, or longer-term political strategy.
Thought leadership and policy development
Drawing on decades of experience within government, think tanks and communications, we help clients to build the suite of policy ideas, messages and collateral that will help them to lead the debate.
Political engagement planning
We support clients to develop their government relations
programmes, using dynamic stakeholder mapping that evolves as priorities change. This can be especially important in legislative or regulatory processes, throughout which decision makers change over time.
Crises are best dealt with before they happen, so we help our clients to build and test the frameworks needed to manage information flows during a crisis.
We can deliver media audits, dynamic mapping and monitoring. We view all media - traditional and digital - in the same space and focus on target audiences first.
