Public Affairs

We have expertise in

Corporate Lobbying

We offer businesses a full public affairs package that will help your company stay up to speed with political developments in your sector and to effectively communicate your perspective to political stakeholders.

Our approach won’t be the same as other agencies, it will be strategic, creative, data driven and tailor made. Our service will be built around your needs, to meet your commercial objectives and suit your way of working.

We have firsthand experience of working at the heart of Westminster, Whitehall and Party politics, so we can offer our clients the kind of insight that really counts when seeking to influence the political system.

Issue led Campaigns

We specialise in delivering fully integrated, issue led, campaigns that bring together the best of public affairs, PR and digital communications practice.

Decision makers don’t operate in a bubble, and what they see in the media and on social media is just as important as what they receive in their postbag or inbox, or hear in a face to face meeting.

We will help you bring your perspective to life; securing maximum exposure and maximising your influence in a cost effective and mutually reinforcing way.

Our award winning integrated campaigns have regularly led to legislative or government change and have significantly boosted the profile of the causes we have worked on.

Political Strategy for Individuals

We work with a wide range of highly successful individuals who want to get more involved with politics.

It’s quite understandable that having had success in the commercial world, some people would like to contribute to public life. But many find the world of politics to be difficult to navigate and frustratingly slow to recognise talent.

We offer expert political counsel to help you build your profile in Westminster and establish relationships that will help you achieve your goals.

Our clients’ ambitions vary from seeking recognition for their achievements, to taking a government advisory role, to pursuing a future full time career in politics.

Testimonials

PHA Media delivered a high-quality service for Living and Dying Well between June and September 2015. They enabled us to reach large numbers of MPs and to brief them on the key issues in the 'assisted dying' debate. PHA also connected us with the print and electronic media and ensured that our voice was heard in the run-up to the debate in the House of Commons on Rob Marris's Assisted Dying Bill. They also established for us a strong presence in social media, a field into which we had not ventured previously. We believe this raising of awareness of the issues played an important part in the outcome of the parliamentary debate.
