Public affairs in PR

In addition to our media relations services, Stone Junction excels in forging strategic relationships with key political and institutional stakeholders. This includes MPs, MSPs, civil servants, as well and influential organisations.

Stone Junction is registered with the Office of the Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists (ORCL). This means we are certified lobbyists that can influence key stakeholders transparently, as any good lobbyist should.

We’re more than just a public affairs consultancy. We can plot your stakeholder outreach and use strategic communication to grab the attention of policymakers. Whether you want to influence a cabinet minister or your local mayor, we can help.

Why is public affairs important?

Government bodies have a direct impact on the markets in which our B2B clients operate. Whether you are developing cleantech and want to lobby for investment and support, or you are an engineering firm demanding regulatory change, we can help.

A strong public affairs campaign can complement technical PR efforts by:

  • Passing on industry knowledge and leverage it to shape policy
  • Highlighting challenges that policymakers may not be aware of
  • Building coalitions of support with like-minded interests
