Big challenges and opportunities need a strategy to match.

That’s why an integrated strategic communications and government relations campaign may be the right choice to make sure your messages are impacting and influencing the decision-makers that matter most.

We do public relations campaigns differently at Counsel. We holistically integrate strategic communications with government relations to make sure we’re creating awareness, momentum and support for your goals.

We call it PR 4 GR.

PR 4 GR is a four-pillared approach with a proven track record of amplifying your message and delivering it to key government targets so that you can achieve your objectives.

With more than a decade of carefully-honed experience, we have it down to a science.

INTEGRATION

We bring government relations and strategic communications together to tackle challenges and opportunities holistically. Shaping public opinion and government perception requires a strategy that strongly integrates both. We bring together our GR and strategic communications teams at the outset of our work with you to make the strongest impact possible.

INFLUENCE

We understand the pressure points that will influence government decision-makers. We’ll craft narratives and messages to help move target audiences towards your goals. Whether it’s a front-page story in a national newspaper, or mobilizing grassroots supporters through social media, we’ll deploy your story to enhance the impact of your government relations efforts with tactics that reach the right audience at the right time to maximize your influence.

EXECUTION

We understand the unique environment of political decision making and how to impact politicians and decision makers in government – and we create and execute integrated plans to make that happen. We provide end-to-end campaign management and oversight that constantly keeps strategic communications in harmony with government relations, while remaining nimble and responsive to changes in the environment.

ACTIVATION

PR 4 GR campaigns engage and activate stakeholders, influencers, activists, and the general public in support of your goals. Strategically building and deploying grassroots support can increase pressure on government to align with your cause.
