The most valuable service we provide to our clients is our honest counsel.
Our team of senior advisors – drawn from the worlds of politics, media, diplomacy and business – specialises in understanding our client’s issues from their perspective as well as that of their opponents. We use this understanding to guide them through some of their most challenging situations, providing invaluable external expert perspectives.
More than ever, perception shapes political agendas and drives policy outcomes.
Red Flag specialises in sifting through complex messages to identify and communicate the most compelling stories across key audiences – from internal stakeholders, to stakeholders, to journalists, and beyond. Red Flag deploys extensive networks across specialist and top-tier media outlets and unparalleled expertise in the business of making news.
GOVERNMENT RELATIONS & ADVOCACY
Achieving policy and regulatory objectives requires comprehensive engagement strategies and tactics, built on much more than traditional access.
Our team are experts in navigating decision-making processes and institutions around the world. We have direct experience in advocacy and campaigns that deliver results on client priorities from the highly technical to the overtly political. Red Flag’s comprehensive public affairs offering encompasses deep expertise in international business, trade, industrial, and financial policy, as well as the Washington International Business Council (WIBC).
RISK MONITORING AND ANALYSIS
At Red Flag, our team of expert analysts scans the horizon for our clients, identifying threats and opportunities before they materialise.
We provide actionable intelligence and insights, and make strategic recommendations. These insights and our analysis allow our clients to preempt issues and avoid crises, and to capitalise on opportunities that arise.
COALITION BUILDING & GRASSROOTS ACTIVATION
Red Flag works with clients to build effective coalitions – whether among businesses, with customers, between business and civil society, or with active citizens.
Depending on the campaign and goals, these alliances may be formal or informal, tightly structured or loosely organised. At the grassroots level, Red Flag has ample experience mobilising citizens with a real stake in key debates, helping them to make their voices and their stories heard across the United States, the EU, and worldwide.
RESEARCH, DATA AND EVIDENCE
Arguments alone rarely carry the day in policy or regulatory debate.
Decision-makers demand a high standard of evidence to support claims made by industry and others. Working with our network of experts, Red Flag helps clients to conduct robust and relevant research and data analysis, while understanding how to present and communicate findings for maximum impact.
Red Flag works with business leaders and their corporate affairs teams to audit, protect and enhance the reputation of their organisations.
We empower senior executives to tell their organisation’s story – building channels and messaging for internal and external communications, facilitating and preparing for major events and media interventions, and managing proactive and reactive engagement with stakeholders.
Digital advocacy and social media engagement form the bedrock of many of our campaigns.
Red Flag’s digital campaign experts are drawn from backgrounds including digital marketing, corporate communications, online political organisation and non-profit digital campaigning. To amplify our clients messages and drive action, we develop and execute digital hubs, targeted social media campaigns (organic and paid), engaging creative assets, partnerships with influencers and more.
