Politics and the public sector are in the greatest state of flux for a generation. Coalition Government has inevitably led to policy fluidity, debate and change. With marginal seats up for grabs between all three Parties, the importance and power of each and every individual backbencher is significant.
We know what it’s like and how it works, because we’ve worked there – including at the heart of Government in Number 10 Downing Street and as a member of the senior management team in the Cabinet Office.
With 25 years’ experience and unrivalled networks of contacts and influence, we have the expertise , insights, credibility and track record to ensure your voice gets heard.
With the economy remaining stubbornly fragile whilst the clock ticks ever louder before the next Election, the search is urgent across all Parties for programmes, investment and policies that will maintain excellence in public service whilst delivering visible growth and stimulus.
You need to tailor your message to politicians and policy-makers with a keen awareness of this context.
From time to time, decision makers, Ministers and Regulators can launch proposals with unforeseen damaging consequences for specific sectors, customers, organisations or industries. If that affects you, you need to be able to argue your case intelligently and strategically in such a way as to convince them to amend their ideas.
To do that, you need support from people with direct experience and contacts from working across all political parties, in Government and Opposition and preferably with people who themselves have worked at the highest levels with Regulators and within the senior civil service.
