Our experts in public affairs communications help clients manage and build relations with decision and policy makers at all levels – local, regional, national and supranational.
Decision makers are faced with opinions and requests at all times. Those who want to make their voice heard need to target decision makers effectively.
Through our broad network and extensive experience, we identify what is relevant to decision makers, attract their attention and point out how to contribute to their overarching vision and beliefs. Because understanding who decision makers and policy makers answer to is also key to attaining a share of voice, we always conduct a stakeholder analysis for each client and assignment.
