Thought Leadership

Public affairs is our chosen profession and we’re passionate about it. As such, we regularly speak and write about its practice and evolution; from how to measure success in public affairs to how to leverage national activities for success in Brussels.

Ever since our partners started in public affairs, they have been part of the profession’s continued evolution. One of our partners launched the concept of digital public affairs in 2008, with the market’s first blog and twitter feed for a consultancy. We’re constantly striving for new ways to help our clients’ reach their goals, bringing a creative, solutions-oriented and client-centric approach to our work.
