Strategic communications and influencing policy
As a public affairs and lobby agency, we support clients in achieving their ambitions to influence policy and engage in strategic communications. Whether you’re looking to influence new draft legislation in The Hague or Brussels, bring a new product onto the market or get rid of harmful trade restrictions, Public Matters’ consultants will advise you on the right public affairs strategy and the most efficient and effective way to implement it.
The right public affairs strategy might be to pursue an integrated campaign to attempt to influence policymakers, as well as managing other stakeholders and deploying digital and traditional media. In addition to advising clients, we provide training and workshops to equip them with the skills they need to undertake these activities effectively.
An important element of our CSR policy is that our advisers contribute to societal interests. For this reason, every year we support a number of organisations pro bono with professional public affairs advice. We have supported organisations in different sectors, such as the cultural sector (music and heritage), the social domain (care and people with disabilities) and sustainability organisations (green living environment). Each year in January the application for new pro bono projects opens. Do you have questions or want more information? Please contact Valérie Mendes de Léon.
