public affairs

An effective public affairs strategy favorably influences how your company is perceived by and engages with public audiences, such as government decision-makers, influencers and opinion leaders, media elites, academia, profit and non-profit organizations, customers, and the public more broadly.

Importantly, all levels of government – national, state, local, and international – can impact your organization's ability to operate and thrive through legislation, regulation, and enforcement actions.
