Services

Below you can learn more about some of our different services and what we can offer your company. We offer tailor-made solutions to all our clients, so if you have needs that are not represented among the listed services, do not hesitate to contact us.

Advocacy is one of the core services we offer. We facilitate strategic democratic discussions, allowing for communication with key stakeholders as well as the opportunity to affect public opinion. At Rud Pedersen Public Affairs, we respect the democratic process and help our clients provide information to elected representatives and civil servants. Our services include strategic counselling, event planning, media relations, as well as campaign counselling that support our clients' goals. We comply with all relevant local regulations throughout our markets.

Any organisation can find itself in an unexpected time of crisis, and the long-term impact of that crisis depends on the organisation's first reaction. At Rud Pedersen Public Affairs, we can navigate our clients’ companies effectively out of a crisis while minimizing potential long-term consequences. In case of any crisis, we offer counselling minute by minute and help in organising and executing your crisis management plan. We also offer full crisis planning to prepare companies for the possibility of crises in the future.

Issue Management is the combination of political knowledge, preparedness, and anticipation of what lies ahead. Our teams utilise issue management techniques to help our clients prepare for, and respond to, regulative and political changes. It is about being proactive and adopting a constructive approach to all relevant stakeholders. By understanding how political and regulatory decisions connect and interact across markets, we help our clients safeguard both their reputations and the commercial basis of their operations.

We are a leading expert when it comes to preparing for and maximizing engagement during the Political Festivals in Northern Europe (Almedalsveckan, Arendalsuka, Arvamusfestival, Folkemødet and SuomiAreena).

The increased public and political interest and participation in these events over the past years has made it increasingly difficult to obtain great engagement among the many actors fighting for attention. It takes more than an important and relevant case to get the right people to engage in the right way. We help plan and execute successful political festival events that resonate with the political climate and further benefit our clients’ overall public affairs efforts.

At Rud Pedersen Public Affairs, we have developed a product that improves our clients’ decision-making basis. As an addition to standard due diligence and business strategising, we have developed a methodology to assess public, regulatory and political risks for a business or an investment. By understanding the issues that go beyond traditional business insights, we can assess these risks and measure the long-term challenges our clients face. We base our counsel on solid analyses and broad experience from both the public and private sector.

In addition to traditional strategic advice and stakeholder communication, our team is experienced in providing Public Affairs training tailored to the needs of suppliers. We provide training for the private sector as well as publicly financed sectors such as healthcare, infrastructure, defence, etc.

We can help you and your team increase your understanding of the decision-making processes in the market where you operate and learn how to best negotiate and communicate with the public sector. Increased understanding throughout your company will help you to more easily detect and manage issues and obstacles that may arise from the regulatory environment you work in.

Diplomatic efforts can be made more efficient if they are supported by locals who can effectively convey different points-of-view and better influence public perceptions. Expanding and strengthening relations with other nations is all about getting heard in the public arena and getting heard for the right reasons. We can set up strategies and campaigns for issue-based advocacy for your organisation or government to create a successful public opinion environment in one or all of the markets where we operate.

We offer stakeholder engagement strategies to build and maintain good relations with all relevant parties. The strategies are tailored to each individual case, based on deep background analyses, and developed in concert with our clients. To ensure the best implementation of the strategy, we support and counsel our clients throughout the process. We also continuously measure and evaluate the result along with our clients.

Companies need to establish their individual corporate story in order to communicate with surrounding stakeholders, opinion leaders and legislators. Strategic communication requires a company approach to public affairs, as well as CSR, marketing and sales. We enter into a partnership with our clients to identify the most relevant communicative approach by integrating a business-relevant strategy with our in-depth knowledge of European society. This allows our clients to consistently make decisions that strengthen their reputations and help them achieve their business targets.

Increasing competition means that any relevant knowledge about tenders, before and during the process, can be a deciding factor in winning or losing a public procurement tender. At Rud Pedersen Public Affairs, we have the experience and understanding of key processes that allow us to support our clients in their tender management.

Transportation and infrastructure are integrated components of growth and business policies, environmental policies and regional policies.
