Politicians need people around them who are politically astute, well connected in Whitehall and have strong, long-standing relationships with all the key political journalists. Our team have all worked in the political arena, as special advisers and senior political aides. In addition, one of our team is the former head speechwriter for the leader of a major UK political party.
We know the corridors of both House of Commons and The Lords well, and have the inside knowledge and expertise to support politicians from all parties. We take our clients' privacy very seriously. For that reason we don't name our UK political clients. We act as a central hub, managing and advising on requests for comment, ensuring our clients are protected and never feel under siege from the media.
We have a long-term retained relationship with an ambitious Conservative MP.
We have worked with a former Labour Minister, several Labour MPs and peers, and have advised on a number of leadership campaigns.
We worked with a new Liberal Democrat peer, supporting him to manage his online profile and advising him on how to best present the interconnect between his business interests and political life.
We have advised a senior member of the Green Party's leadership team on her personal PR and political profile.
We worked with Androulla Vassiliou, former EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, securing interviews in the national media during visits to London.
We have advised leaders of several large local authorities and borough councils.
