Grayling Brussels has won the Brexit-related Campaign of the Year Award at the prestigious Public Affairs Awards Europe. The Grayling Brexit Unit, set up in January 2016, provides clients across all industry sectors with political intelligence, strategic advice and tailor-made advocacy campaigns on all facets of Brexit and its impact on business.
We started by developing our expertise and appointing a dedicated team – of seven public affairs experts for both Brussels and London and a further ten across Europe. Thereafter we launched our weekly newsletter the Brexit Bulletin which is still going strong and gains new subscribers each week.
Subsequently we broadened our scope to include events. Our monthly Brexit Club was initiated in the Summer 2017, now in its thirteenth edition, which is designed to encourage debate between business, decision-makers, and other stakeholders. In addition, we hold larger issue specific panel-style events.
Our Brexit Unit has allowed us to increase our revenues significantly by winning specific Brexit briefs and expanding the scope of our work with current clients.
