TBR's services are grouped around four core ‘centres of excellence’ – reputation campaigning, public affairs (lobbying), financial comms and strategy consulting.
The Brexit Unit aims to provide clients with ‘insight & intelligence’, help with ‘advocacy’ and promises to ‘help clients to ensure that their objectives and strategies for Brexit and their representations for future trading arrangements between the UK / EU are heard and understood by policymakers in government as well as regulators’.
It says it is ‘already advising over a dozen major clients on their strategy and approach on Brexit’.
The Unit comprises of senior Teneo and Teneo Blue Rubicon consultants. A number of its recent hires bring advantage to companies seeking to influence the Brexit process:
