ENTERPRISE POLICY CONSULTING FOR
We empower our clients to engage more effectively with public policy on behalf of business communities and local economies
WHAT WE DO
We support industry networks and area partnerships to campaign for their business growth priorities.
Our recent work takes in policy campaigns for government financial support of businesses affected by COVID lockdowns in the UK. And we’ve supported policy advisors to grow in confidence through our mentoring service.
We draw on years of experience working in lobbying and campaigns for membership organisations; developing policy and strategy in government contexts; and building teams, systems and capabilities that work.
Our skills were honed in fast-moving contexts including the present Coronavirus crisis; the financial crisis of 2007-8, the Brexit referendum of 2016 and the no-deal Brexit deadlines of 2019.
We don’t have the overheads of a major public affairs agency: we can work with freelancers and others to meet the scale of your needs.
We know that sometimes you want direct support but need things quick without the commitment of a major commission. So subject to availability, PolicyDepartment offers a range of super-value, fast-turnaround consulting services for commissions taking between 2 hours and 2 days equivalent to complete.
WHY OUR CLIENTS LOVE US
"It was great to partner with PolicyDepartment on our economy Restart work which has had real impact and helped shape government thinking"
