What is Public Affairs?

No company or industry operates in a vacuum. Government, in all forms, can and will affect your business. For better or for worse. Elected officials aren’t the only people you must understand and influence. Citizen groups, homeowners, professional organizations and the media can all impact business success. An effective public affairs team will help you appropriately engage, hear and address the needs of these audiences.

You need to know how to create the kind of change you desire, manage change when necessary and defend against it if it poses a risk to your investors, shareholders, industry, community or employees. Not to mention your bottom line.

Navigating this maze of ever-changing parties requires strategic planning and usually a combination of lobbying, stakeholder outreach, coalition building, risk analysis and mitigation and effective communications.
