TRANSPORT 

From helping Virgin Atlantic’s communications team to forge stronger relationships and influence in the Scottish Parliament, to an integrated communications campaign for A Fair Tax on Flying, to lobbying City Hall and Parliament around the HS2 Bill and its impact on the Euston Station environs: our consultants have designed and implemented a wide range of successful transport lobbying campaigns. 

 

EDUCATION

Our team has worked in senior government positions and private sector roles specialising in education policy. Sam Cunningham was Private Secretary to former Education Secretary Lord Adonis at the Department for Education, worked as Press Adviser to Education Minister Nick Gibb, and held a senior communications and government relations role for Pearson Education, based in both London and Sydney. We have an in-depth working knowledge of the educational landscape and work with clients like English UK to successfully lobby for an improved and fair regulatory environment for English language colleges.

 

FINANCE & TAX 

We help our clients shape debate and influence policy within key government departments, including the Treasury, HMRC and BEIS. Whether you’re looking to launch a major campaign for tax reform, respond to a regulatory threat or understand and influence financial legislation – we have the expertise and experience to help navigate what can often be a highly technical and complex regulatory environment. Our specialists have worked at the heart of Government and helped draft and launch White Papers and Industrial Strategies so can advise clients how best to navigate Whitehall and make an impact with policy makers.

 

ANIMAL WELFARE

With many animal welfare issues devolved to Holyrood and Cardiff Bay, we’ve supported clients to navigate and influence changing animal welfare policy across England, Scotland and Wales. We also work in Brussels to support clients in the animal welfare space to address some of the cross-border issues which face campaigners, including puppy smuggling and the impact of the unregulated online sales of exotic pets.

 

HEALTH

Navigating the UK’s ever-changing healthcare environment can be a daunting prospect. We can help guide you through the complex layers of accountability and governance from the Department of Health and NHS England to the CCGs and primary care providers. Our health and social care experience spans local government, Westminster and the European Parliament.

 

SOCIAL ISSUES 

We've worked closely with clients like the Social Progress Imperative who are helping to shape the way we think about society, Divest Invest who are committed to changing our investing habits away from fossil fuel investments and the Social Business Trust who are on the vanguard to upscaling some of the UK's most innovative social enterprises so they can expand their reach and influence. We've worked with the leadership teams at these organisations to help raise their profile and credibility among both consumer and political audiences.
