European Union

In 1997, we opened our EU-focused office in Brussels, which has since grown to include over 40 consultants. Working with clients in various sectors, our focus lies on delivering results that make them happy; we are passionate about public affairs and bring that energy to work every day.

Welcome to Brussels

We listen to your needs and provide professional support, whilst making room for casual chats and political gossip. A human client relationship is very important to us – as that is how we foster long-lasting partnerships that, like our strategies, deliver sustainable outcomes of value and quality. We become an integral part of your team in your day-to-day operations and your trusted sparring partners in the long term.

Our sectors

Our fields of action

We have started our practice with a focus on the digital sector, in which we have developed strong knowhow on hot topics such as AI, privacy, cybersecurity and much more. Over the past decade, our expertise has naturally expanded to other sectors, such as energy, sustainability, mobility & transport, health & wellbeing, and food. Our team of passionate experts are always ready to jump into a new topic, building on our extensive cross-sectoral knowledge.

Our services

Our way of working

We proactively prepare

First, we hold a kick-off meeting during which we delve deeply into your business model and policy needs. Via thoughtful questions, in-depth research and an exploration of industry challenges, we uncover unique opportunities and potential obstacles. Moreover, we define KPIs to ensure our advice aligns perfectly with your objectives.

We build a comprehensive strategy

We draft your game plan based on compelling policy narratives. On the one hand, we support you in maximising your advocacy and building your EU network by identifying networking and speaking opportunities. On the other hand, we advise you on how to make the most of trade associations and other industry partnerships.

We move our office chair closer to yours

Fuelled by our philosophy of forging solid relationships, we seamlessly integrate ourselves into your team – serving as an extension to your workforce. Additionally, we hold weekly calls with a rolling agenda.

We make your voice heard

We ensure your voice resonates where it matters most. From media outreach and strategic event participation to mapping policy influencers, we amplify your presence and influence, foster relationships with key journalists and build a robust network of stakeholders. Proactive intelligence gathering and comprehensive media monitoring keep you abreast, while strategic analysis finetunes your communication approach.

We do not standardise, but customise

To help you achieve your goals, we conduct a SWOT analysis in which we determine where and how you can have the most impact. Our strategies are action-oriented, based on policy and political developments. At Political Intelligence, we reject the one-size-fits-all approach, instead, we provide tailored solutions that address your specific needs.

We reassess for success

We keep a clear focus; to stay on course with our shared objectives, our team will hold quarterly strategic meetings. Those allow us to reassess priorities in light of political and business developments and to follow up on action points, ensuring that we have the right impact.

We nurture a culture of feedback

To learn from each other and strengthen our partnership, we introduce two annual review moments. During those, we will collaboratively evaluate the team spirit and our achievements as well as identify ways to improve our way of working. With that in mind, we ensure continuous growth and refinement.
