We are the public affairs specialists. Our strength lies in helping businesses or associations grow through proactive and innovative engagement with a broad spectrum of stakeholders at all levels of influence, from politicians down to grass roots campaigners.
This starts with a thorough understanding of the ‘political’ environment (in the broadest sense). Our teams are political generalists and sector specialists who know the direction policy is taking and who is driving change in the general business environment or in a tightly regulated sector.
We deliver regular policy insight to inform business planning and decision-making or get involved because there’s an urgent need to engage or develop campaigns on business-critical issues.
We number many blue chips amongst our client base, as well as SMEs and associations and professional societies who want to grow their membership and their influence worldwide.
With good business sense and a passion for politics, we build trust and strong relationships with our clients, many of whom have been with us for ten years or more. There couldn’t be a better recommendation than that.
Here at Ogilvy we pride ourselves on the ethos CAN meets DO.
Clients come to us with a broad range of business challenges and problems and we formulate a specialist team around them to transform their business. This isn’t just about coming up with great ideas, it’s the execution, the measurement and the ability to start a conversation around these ideas that place our clients ahead of their competitors. Our building has been designed to ensure teams are fluid, 100% agile and can be combined in an infinite way to best suit our clients’ needs. These bespoke teams are formed from experts across the marketing field; PR, Content Creation, Video Production, SEO, Customer Engagement & Advertising, all sharing in the Ogilvy culture – no warring tribes.
We couple our ability to dream up big ideas with a commitment to delivery, our bespoke teams share a common operating system that runs right across every discipline and every specialism- when we say we DO it means we deliver across all channels, fast. Our collaborative way of working has been designed to extend prototyping from products to all kinds of creative ideas, from all corners of the agency. Born from the desire to ‘think & do simultaneously’, Makerspace provides the opportunity for ideas to be brought to life through products, content, experiences, films & apps – & furthermore tested & given feedback on, in house early in the creative process. With the relationship between making & creating at the helm of Makerspace, clients are given the opportunity to capitalize on culturally relevant ideas with minimal downtime.
We are always open to conversations about new challenges – whether that’s within the UK or across the globe with 538 offices, over a third in the BRIC countries, we are ready to help you expand wherever you need or want to. And you can find out more about our network here.
