Every organisation faces difficult times, and at the Whitehouse Consultancy we understand that if our clients ever face a crisis, they need a bespoke crisis communications plan that addresses their circumstances and needs.
This knowledge is what makes us one of the foremost specialists in crisis communications in London.
When we prepare a crisis communications plan for our clients, we use every aspect of our experience and expertise – whether that involves public relations, public affairs, stakeholder engagement or event management.
Who we are
The Whitehouse Consultancy was established in 1998 by our Chairman, Chris Whitehouse. We’ve build a reputation not only as one of our industry’s leading specialists, but also as one of the most ethical consultancies in the sector, adhering at all times to the code of conduct of the Association of Professional Political Consultants. Our services include:

- Market access
- EU politics and policy
- Press office management
We work with all levels of the UK media and with every level of government, whether that is national, local, devolved, or within the European Union. We understand the media and the political and policy making processes, and use that knowledge and experience to prepare a comprehensive crisis communications plan for each of our clients.
A political consulting and crisis communication firm you can trust
When our clients need a crisis communications plan, they know they can trust our consultants to treat their data with the upmost confidence. Our clients also know that our consultants are hugely experienced in preparing crisis communications plans – meaning that they can trust our strategic advice and senior council implicitly.
Honing a client`s message
We understand that some crises can come from nowhere, but equally that the secret of a good crisis communications plan is anticipation and preparation. We help our clients understand the potential risks to their businesses and reputations, and how these risks can be mitigated. It is this capacity for preparation and contingency planning - and our ability to mitigate risk - that makes us one of the best specialists in crisis communications in London.
Since our inception in 1998 we’ve worked with countless businesses, multinationals, charities and other organisations. One of our first clients was the British Olympic Association, which set us the brief of convincing the government of the day, the opposition, and the London Mayor to unite in a bid to bring the Olympics to London in 2012.
That bid was of course successful, and it began with our expert counsel.
“The BOA undertook a major political lobbying exercise to convince government and opposition parties of the merits of launching a bid for 2012 Olympic Games.
“The political strategy required detailed planning and careful execution if it was to stand any chance of success. Whitehouse’s guidance in this respect with fundamental to the outcome … there is little doubt that without Whitehouse’s detailed understanding of Parliament and Whitehall and their excellent contacts the project would have struggled to get off the ground.”
