Stakeholder engagement & public affairs

Who are the people you need to back your business, or support your campaign, to make it a success?

We can help you identify them and bring them on board

Stakeholders are anyone who can affect, or is affected by, an organisation or project. Your key stakeholders may be internal – for example, your employees – or external, such as current or potential customers, lobby groups, politicians, or the media. The list goes on and is different for each brand.

We can analyse who your key stakeholders are, work with you on the messages you want to get across and decide how best to reach them; perhaps through events, consultations or one-to-one conversations, communicating through traditional or social media, building your corporate social responsibility (CSR) or through other means.

And then we’ll make it happen.

Planning stakeholder engagement

 

stakeholder mapping – research – strategic communication programmes – tracking & measuring perception – public consultation events

When your success depends upon the advocacy of stakeholder groups, you need a strategy that leaves nothing to chance.

We bring many years of planning-focused stakeholder engagement and public consultation expertise to the table, Many businesses, large and small, have trusted us to build relationships with local government, infuential business groups, and local communities, and to deliver positive outcomes across residential and commercial schemes.

When you’re looking to win support for a proposed new development, we think long-term and act quickly to help you understand the potential blockers and barriers to success, evolve public opinion and build advocacy, and develop meaningful dialogue and foster positive relationships with officials and elected members.

Just a few of the companies which we’ve managed stakeholder engagement projects for :

‘I just want to put on record how grateful I am for the amazing job you guys do.

‘When we first began working together, back in my days at Julia’s House, you managed to get us almost daily in local newspapers, on radio and you brought us TV coverage for some of our more significant events.

One of the most valuable roles you played was linking us up with notable people locally who opened doors for us or went on to be active celebrity patrons.’
