Public Affairs

Public affairs, government relationsChelgate has a successful public affairs and government relations team, providing clients with individually-tailored programmes. Our team combines years of experience – in Westminster and in Brussels – with the contacts and political acumen to deliver strategic advice, enabling clients to achieve their objectives. We guarantee that all our clients work directly with senior public affairs executives on a day-to-day basis, under the leadership of our deputy chairman, Nick Wood-Dow.

An important component of our public affairs offer is our European government relations service. With an office in Brussels, Chelgate has years of expertise working with the European Commission and Parliament, as well as with the European Union’s representation in Eastern Europe.

How we work

We pride ourselves on being honest and straightforward with clients about what is achievable, and in what timeframe objectives can be achieved. We also believe that the client is the best person to deliver a message, but we work alongside the client to help deliver that message in the most effective way, to the right people at the right time.

We provide a wide range of public affairs services, including political monitoring, stakeholder mapping, third party programmes, campaign management, political and select committee training, events organising, and party conference programmes, as well as offering broad strategic and tactical resources and guidance. Our success can be measured by the broad range of clients we have worked with, and the successful outcomes we have achieved. And our clients can be sure that we will work diligently and efficiently across this range of services to help you achieve your goals.
