Promoting and Protecting Your Interests
Important stakeholders, such as politicians, civil servants, trade associations and NGOs, can all have a significant impact on your organisation – be it your license to operate, your reputation or the development of policy and regulation. We will work with you to understand the likely effects their action will have on your organisation and what you can do to ensure the impact is positive. Our proprietary research and analysis methodologies quickly identify potential issues and allow our clients to accurately appraise their options.
Our consultants have extensive experience in developing successful, integrated and measurable stakeholder engagement campaigns across the UK, Europe and globally, and have helped organisations safeguard and promote their interests despite considerable opposition. We also have particular expertise in developing, implementing and running international advocacy coalitions on issues ranging from heavily regulated products to metropolitan vehicle-congestion charges.
Crucially, at Sermelo we understand that public affairs activity should not operate in a vacuum, but should be integrated with other key communications disciplines, such as public relations and reputation management to ensure that it is as effective as possible in meeting our clients’ objectives.
We offer a range of public affairs services, including:
- Strategic counsel
- Integrated campaigns
- Global advocacy coalitions
- EU, UK & Global Government relations
- Policy analysis and insight
- Stakeholder and Issues mapping
- Training for appearing in front of legislative committees
