Public Affairs at FleishmanHillard UK
We’re the agency for political change. Every day we work with our clients to change stakeholder perceptions, promote the policy change they want to see and fight the change they don’t.
We are set apart by our communications approach to public affairs. This means we are strategic – guiding our clients towards clear goals, asks and messages; integrated – using the full suite of communications channels, from traditional stakeholder engagement to media and digital influence, and creative – bringing to political influence the boldness and innovation of a world-leading communications agency.
We offer clients a team with first-hand experience of government, parliament, the civil service, local government and campaigning; rich insight and contacts across the political spectrum, and extensive policy knowledge and consulting excellence.
Since the onset of the pandemic in the United Kingdom, UKHospitality (UKH) has been successful in securing vital UK Government support to save and protect hospitality and tourism businesses wherever possible.
Working closely with the UKHospitality in-house team and executive, FleishmanHillard UK has provided ongoing senior political counsel, quickly devised impactful, integrated public affairs campaigns and launched multiple grassroots digital initiatives.
Not only has this helped UKH secure policy changes and preferential funding (for example, a business rates holiday in 2021 and the introduction and subsequent extension of a hospitality and tourism VAT reduction from 20% to 5%) but it has also helped to champion the reputation of the sector as a key British industry deserving of widespread political and stakeholder support.
