We know how to start a conversation and get people on board

Our Stand Engage team are experts at bringing together the right people and getting your message across to the right stakeholders; whether they’re in the House of Commons, your local community or in a boardroom in Canary Wharf.

Communicating effectively is what we do best.  Whether you’re a multinational we’re guiding through a Select Committee submission, a charity we’re connecting with a local authority or a SME we’re linking up with an influential trade body or business group, we’ll make sure you’re informing the debate.

We don’t see public affairs and public relations as two separate entities – because they’re not!  Our expertise lies in telling your story to the right people at the right time, and we’ll use our creativity, determination and understanding of the media, political world and local communities to make that happen. We create engagement strategies and campaigns that deliver results for our clients because they’re tailored, targeted and tenacious. It really is as simple as that.
