  • Restart & Recovery: Conservative Party Conference Boris’ big relaunch

    October 6, 2020

    By Tomos Davies - Director, Public Affairs.   The Conservative Party Conference, like so many aspects of daily life, was quite a different affair this year. Few public affairs practitioners will have mourned the tedium of attending the 8am fringe event, the customary rabble-rousing from the main conference hall or the warm (and cheap!) white wine. And whilst this year’s affair was devoid of the political theatre of previous conferences, the adulating Tory faithful and...

  • A Tricky Conservative Conference 2020 for International Trade

    October 5, 2020

    By Michael Hartt, Head of International Affairs, and Luke Downham, Senior Account Executive, Public Affairs.   This year’s Conservative Party Conference was meant to be a high-water mark of Boris Johnson’s leadership of a party grateful for the 80-seat majority he handed to them back in December. Instead of basking in the warm glow of an adoring party, the Prime Minister is faced with multiple crises and a battle to resurrect his premiership. With his...

  • Fighting the ‘war’ on climate emergency

    September 15, 2020

    By Grace Duncan, Senior Account Executive. In the last few months, institutions have talked about the ‘war’ on COVID-19 and our ‘front-line heroes’ fighting a ‘deadly enemy’. While there has been debate about whether referring to a virus as if we were approaching World War Three is appropriate, it prompted rational and immediate reaction. With COVID-19 guidelines changing, the language change, and crucially the need for the public to react to that language change, has...

  • Listening in lockdown: how the crisis helped refocus the journalist-PR relationship

    August 13, 2020

    By Amy Story, Account Manager, Technology. As PR professionals, our relationship with the British media is of course a fundamental part of our work, which, like so many aspects of our lives, has been drastically affected by the COVID pandemic.
