STRATEGY & FUNDING
ENTERPRISE POLICY CONSULTING FOR
Create economic development strategies, vision statements and sector plans for more successful business communities.
WHAT WE DO
We work with local government to produce economic development strategies, sector and cluster growth plans. We support industry associations, corporates and charities with policy manifestos and vision statements.
Our recent work takes in post-COVID economic recovery plans in the UK. We’ve also worked on growth plans for the Advanced Manufacturing and Materials sector.
We draw on two decades of experience working on strategies in commercial, local economic development and membership association contexts.
Our skills were honed in major 'change moments', 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 big 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.
