Investor and financial communications advice for the telecoms sector
Tavistock has unparalleled experience in Telecommunications gained in over 25 years of working with some of the largest and best known UK and global brands in both fixed line and mobile.
Our knowledge is drawn from a team with diverse backgrounds including former financial analysts, accountants, FTSE 100 in-house telecoms teams and science and technology graduates. This gives us the capability to understand complex technologies, applications and target markets and deliver outstanding results for our clients.
Our work in providing expert advice and consistently delivering excellent results for large FTSE 100s, means we have also been able to bring this experience, knowledge and our contacts to bear for developing companies and companies which invest in the space.
We have advised and executed investor relations and financial PR initiatives for household name global telcos and their subsidiaries around the world, as well as growing companies. We assist our clients not only in connection with financial calendar, reporting management, investor relations and other corporate events, but have also advised on some of the largest M&A transactions in history. Our clients have also included companies which actively pursue investments and acquisitions in Europe and globally. We have also supported them during times of crisis and helped formulate and implement strategy.
Tavistock has used its experience and contacts to create and implement effective media relations strategies to help our clients in their consumer interactions. We have advised and assisted Telcos of varying sizes and stages of development as they launch new handsets, new services, apps and talk plans.
Regulation, Infrastructure and Communities
Our unique understanding of the Telecoms space has allowed us to advise our clients on wider issues, implementing media and investor relations strategies as they bid for spectrum, comply with standards, roll out new technologies and face an ever changing regulatory environment, be it UK or internationally. We help them devise communications strategies in a rapidly evolving and converging voice and data world. In addition to implementing national and international media relations strategies, Tavistock has helped to design and execute highly successful media programmes to engage with local communities focusing on infrastructure across the UK.
“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
