Good political engagement blends skilled communication, an outstanding network, discretion, political insight and intelligence. We pride ourselves in having all five.

Navigating policy, politics, and regulation is now more complex than ever. Brexit, populism, and fragmenting politics are forcing companies with established public affairs teams to engage in new issues without the necessary knowledge or networks.

Equally, organisations that have never engaged with politics are suddenly finding themselves thrust into an arena that they don’t have experience of dealing with, but that threatens the way they work.

Our team has decades of experience in political engagement and government relations, and a broad and senior network to match. From policy development and legislative intervention to building coalitions of support, Blakeney’s approach to public affairs is strategic and focused on clear outcomes.

We are politically-neutral, with strong relationships across the political spectrum.

“Blakeney is staffed by senior communications professionals, who have all worked in variety of in-house corporate roles, which gives them a unique insight into how to advise Corporate Affairs teams. No other consultancy in the UK can provide this level of support and value.”
