Business leaders from Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and across the Solent region attended the launch of a new Public Affairs and Stakeholder Engagement service being offered by Business Solent.
The breakfast event, held at the Botley Park Hotel, provided attendees with an insight into how Solent Engagement can help organisations to connect with stakeholders and key decision makers at the heart of local, regional and national government.
Business Solent has teamed up with Southampton based Defero Communications to deliver the offering that will include strategic planning, research, stakeholder, community, political and government relations.
Business Solent, Chief Executive, Sally Lynskey, commented: “Solent Engagement” can help to influence decisions, shape public opinion and provide intelligence that will offer real competitive advantage whether you need to engage with a Politian, a key stakeholder or a pressure group.”
Grant Woodall, Director, Defero Communications, said: “Solent Engagement is born from the great work that has been delivered by the Business Solent Public Affairs Group, the changing political landscape and continued demand from Champions for assistance and guidance.”
Solent Engagement will hold a monthly surgery on the first Tuesday of every month. The first surgery will take place on 3rd April 2012. To book a free half-an-hour consultation or to find our more please contact Business Solent.
