Our client, a niche trade federation, has a small staff and a broad remit. As it is their job to know what is happening in their industry, they keep abreast of the news in their sector, but they rely on Keystone Consulting for political monitoring. We monitor parliament, government departments and quangos for important developments. When we spot anything that’s relevant we inform them and discuss how they wish to proceed. For example, a consultation from the Home Office that was important to their members but received little coverage, could have passed them by. However, it was spotted by us and, after consulting with them, we helped to prepare a consultation response on their behalf that will help drive change.
