Expertise

Government Relations: The GCA Public Affairs team believes that mitigating political and policy risk is an essential compo-nent of an organization’s business strategy. Increasingly, challenges emerge from new domestic legis-lation, the threat of violent conflicts, and changes in political culture which can create huge costs for business. We strive to provide a comprehensive set of solutions under an overarching government relations strategy, including political and legislative risk responses, violent conflict risk mitigation, and social and cultural contextual reporting.

Issues and Crisis Management: At GCA, one of our key Public Affairs services is to defend and strengthen your company’s or organization’s reputation. We tailor our responses and work closely with key decision-makers and stakeholders to ensure that responses to crises and public affairs challenges result in a positive outcome. At GCA we create a series of solu-tions such as proactive editorial content, strategic media responses as well as training internal company stakeholders, under a holistic response strategy.

Business and Public Affairs stakeholder engagement: Have you wondered who the key decision-makers are to access a new market? What are the regulatory requirements for the set-up of a new business vertical and, who is in charge of managing these requirements? Answering these questions can be daunting if one is unfamiliar with a particular juris-diction. GCA Public Affairs specializes in Strategic Stakeholder Engagement across the Middle East Region as well as Canada and the Iberian Peninsula. We do this by offering you a range of information and implementation strategies to assist businesses with access into new markets. We can provide you with critical network mapping of business and public affairs decision-making, we arrange inter-national visits and road shows, and we can provide real-time insight into market conditions.
