The Whitehouse Consultancy is a leading London public affairs consultancy. What makes us a leading public affairs specialist is the knowledge that our clients have unique needs and that each requires a bespoke public affairs strategy.
Our goal is to help each of our clients meet their public affairs objectives, using every means and service at our disposal – whether our public affairs strategy involves public relations, a stakeholder engagement plan, crisis communications or event management support.
Who we are
The Whitehouse Consultancy was founded by Chris Whitehouse in 1998. Initially a public affairs specialist, we’ve since developed our services offerings and work across numerous policy areas – all the while adhering to the code of conduct of the Association of Professional Political Consultants. Today, our services include:
- Political risk consulting
- Media and communications
- Public relations
- Events management
- Integrated campaigns
- Crisis management
- Market access
- EU politics and policy
We work with every aspect of the media, and engage with every level of government – whether at local, national or European levels. We understand the policy making process and help ensure our clients are talking to the right people, in the right way, and at the right time.
A public affairs firm you can trust
Our public affairs specialists are trusted by our clients to not only handle sensitive information with the upmost confidentiality, but also to develop and implement a public affairs strategy that meets our client’s objectives. Our clients know we’re able to do this because of our exhaustive knowledge of policy and because our public affairs strategies are not simply based on how thick our contacts book is. Our work is founded on the principal that public affairs should be based on who, rather than what, you know – and we make sure our clients are speaking to the right people, and delivering the right message, in the right way, at the right time.
Honing a client`s message
As a leading public affairs firm we know that our clients face not only opportunities but also risks. Our comprehensive knowledge of policy and the policy making process allows our public affairs specialists to understand and anticipate the risks to our client – while also identifying opportunities that we help our clients to capitalise on. This is what makes us one of the best London public affairs firms.
One of our first clients was the British Olympic Association, which set us a challenging brief: to create and implement the public affairs strategy that would convince the government, opposition and Mayor of London to bid for the 2012 Olympics.
We achieved this brief and are proud of our role in bringing the Games to London.
“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.”
