Public Affairs & Government Relations - Political Communication in a Complex World

Icon

Working in the political arena is demanding in terms of content, because only strong arguments are effective in the long term. A high level of knowledge is therefore just as necessary as familiarity with political processes, stakeholders, and their communication behavior. A key success factor is also integrated work with recourse to creation, moving image, digital, press, and crisis specialists. And in today’s multi-level EU system, a strong presence in Brussels is often required to effectively represent interests.

 

Dr. Thies ClausenThe major transformations of our time are also transformations of the political and¬†regulatory¬†environment. Protecting interests and reputation requires prudent public affairs work – today more than ever.” – Dr. Thies Clausen, Head of Corporate & Public Affairs

 

We believe that public affairs consulting is, at its core, knowledge- and consulting-intensive work at the interfaces of business, politics, civil society, media, law, and science. Therefore, a special focus of our work is the conception and management of scientific studies. In doing so, we always keep an eye on the essentials: the contribution of political communication to the goals of our clients: Companies, associations and NGOs. Our contacts are usually top management, public affairs, communications, and strategy managers.
