GMS Management provides information and public affairs advice to companies seeking to influence government, media and public issues.
We source and provide information that identifies who and how people are shaping or influencing the regulatory environment. This includes whether competitors are engaged at a policy or political level highlighting efforts to gain a commercial / competitive advantage; or whether stakeholders are raising issues about a company which may lead to enforcement action or other inquiries.
Alongside the competitive advantages and longer-term business value, these strategies have provided value to businesses that have;
- Challenging regulatory issues or public policy concerns
- Provide an independent avenue for information
- Crisis or reputational problems that have political ramifications
- An interest in identifying commercial opportunities
Successful public affairs activities should be based on positive engagement and be backed by sound knowledge of the participants engaged in, and or, exerting influence on issues.
