Strategic thinking, involvement with stakeholders at all levels, diverse knowledge and experience, and a results-oriented approach make us a valuable part of your team.
- Alliance development: Decision makers respond to a variety of constituencies – supporters, interest groups, and the media. Grassroots development is simply citizen participation in public policy, and the key to successful alliance development efforts is assembling people who share common goals and concerns. WHA can help clients share their views with potential allies and find common ground and shared interests upon which to advance public policy decisions.
- Public affairs: Public opinion is shaped by what people see and hear. Organizations need to anticipate and manage public issues and to enhance their relations with governments, local communities and key stakeholders. Our public affairs services help clients identify which mediums will have the most impact on their issues, and which outlets will be most effective in delivering their messages.
- Government relations: Productive working relationships with governments at all levels need to be established and maintained in order to integrate a variety of activities into an effective, persuasive campaign. Drawing on their extensive network, WHA can help clients build support at various levels of government by communicating views on proposed bills and regulations, building advocacy networks, presenting positions to legislative committees, building media and grass roots support, and anticipating the reactions and needs of policy makers.
- Web design and online communications: Our integrated approach to online communications offers clients a complete range of services including website design, content management, custom programming, Web 2.0 applications and social media integration. Our expertise in Content Management Systems such as Joomla, Drupal, eZ Publish, and WordPress allows us to identify and implement the software solution best suited to meet your company’s online needs.
