Public Affairs

Driving a public policy agenda forward requires an integrated communications strategy grounded in persuasive, informed messaging and political smarts. Our team understands the interplay between government, business, media, and the community at large, and has the political savvy and relationships to operate within these dynamics. Our work spans many policy areas, including energy, education, trade, housing, social services, transportation and climate change.

Media Relations

Our team knows what makes a good story – and how to craft the right narrative so newsrooms want to tell it. Our work is strategic: not coverage for the sake of it, but rather smartly placed stories that reach the influencers that matter most to define debates and drive decisions on behalf of our clients.
