Brussels Office Since

1 January 2018

Firm Description

Companies and organisations are faced with an increasingly complex and fragmented EU regulatory landscape. Public debates on important societal challenges, as well as rapidly evolving technological advances, put pressure on decision-makers to introduce new rules or adapt or abolish existing ones. In the era of fake news, hard facts and scientific evidence can no longer be relied on to guarantee a positive outcome.

BOLDT’s experienced public affairs team, which includes several former high-level officials and politicians, helps companies and organisations navigate the world of politics and populism, from the national level, via the EU and EFTA, to international organisations.

Our services range from public affairs, public policy and political risk analysis, to CEO positioning, brand and reputation, organisational culture and engagement, issues management and crisis communications.

Key team members in Brussels:

  • Jeremy Galbraith (Managing Partner)
  • Simone Ceruti (Partner)
  • Michiel van Hulten (Partner)
  • Katarina Wallin Bureau (Partner)

Thought Leadership

Last year, we presented ‘Managing Brexit’, the most comprehensive timeline to date of opportunities for companies and organisations to engage with the Brexit process.

We also published ‘Added value – what Europe can do to regain the initiative’, a report that looks at the policy challenges facing the EU in the next 5-year political cycle and the opportunities that exist for stakeholders to engage effectively with the EU institutions. The report was launched at an event where former Danish Prime Minister, current CEO of Save the Children International Helle Thorning-Schmidt was the keynote speaker.

Testimonials and why clients like to work with us

Clients choose us because we challenge them, and we measure ourselves by the impact we have on their business. If they win, we win.
