The expertise and dedication of our public affairs team, with its combined experience of decades at Westminster and Whitehall, was recently recognised in the national industry awards.
We believe that to best make your case to government you need a compelling narrative that does more than simply sell a message - it needs to be carefully tailored to the prevailing political agenda.
Public affairs is more than arranging meetings, letter writing and talking up the positives. In the current political climate you need a sustained campaign that sets you apart from the crowd that presses the appropriate buttons in Whitehall.
Tavistock can help craft your successful campaign.
"You need a sustained campaign that sets you apart from the crowd ..."
We would like to hear from you
