Public Affairs

Political influence is evolving, and BCW’s public affairs counsel is evolving with it.

Whilst robust and insight-led engagement is still important, traditional levels of political power are increasingly interacting with new and fast-evolving networks of stakeholders. Grassroots activism, direct digital engagement with stakeholders, social-media campaigns, 24/7 media scrutiny - the number of actors involved in exerting maximum political impact is increasing.
