Tendo Consulting are a London based public affairs company, founded by Will de Peyer and Peter Carroll, two former special advisers to former chief secretary to the treasury Danny Alexander, in 2015.

Due to de Peyer and Carroll's previous positions, Tendo had to be approved by the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments. Both men were given the advice that they were not to 'draw on privileged information available to [them] as a crown servant', 'for two years from his last day of service, he should not become personally involved in lobbying the UK Government on behalf of his new company or its clients' and 'for two years from his last day of service he must seek confirmation from the committee directly that each individual commission is permissible under the terms of his consultancy before taking it up.[1] [2]


According to their website, Tendo offer the following services:

  • Government Relations - 'Success depends on understanding government and making sure that government understands you. We provide strategic and tactical advice on how to engage effectively with the political process from the local to the national and international based on our years of experience working at the most senior levels of Government'.
  • Public Affairs & Media Consultancy - 'Helping you gain competitive advantage by making sure that how you see the world is informed by how the world sees you'.
  • Inspirational Campaigning - 'Strategic campaign advice to corporates, charities and trade associations to change their world. We have a multi-award winning track record in running high profile campaigning in both politics and the wider community from Joanna Lumley’s Gurkha campaign to running political campaigns for elected office'.[3]



Tendo do not currently (as of July 2015) declare their clients or staff on the registers of the Association of Professional Political Consultants, Public Relations Consultants Association, UK Public Affairs Council or the Government's new Register of Consultant Lobbyists.
