  • FleishmanHillard Davos Digest World Economic Forum 2021 – The Davos Agenda

    January 29, 2021

    The view from around the world Stephanie Bailey, Senior Partner, Managing Director of Corporate and Head of FleishmanHillard COP26 Unit What a year. What a year.

  • How companies can best prepare for COP26

    January 25, 2021

    Stephanie Bailey, senior partner, managing director of corporate and head of COP26 unit For a long time, there has been no hope.

  • The next Covid battle: Vaccines vs Misinformation

    January 21, 2021

    Digital and social will have a hugely important role to play if we’re to beat Covid misinformation and with it, the coronavirus.

Most were not current FleishmanHillard clients. This is a summary of what we learned:   Brexit and Covid-19 made progress on wider...

  • New Year = New Approach to Public Affairs?

    January 11, 2021
