    Our philosophy is to provide clients with value adding strategic counsel and high quality execution – by the same people.

That way, we can ensure that we deliver results and surpass expectations, at competitive prices that only an independent agency can offer.

    We believe in the power of taking an integrated approach to advocacy and communication to achieve outcomes that have a tangible impact on business performance. We have a track record of developing winning strategies that are sustainable, by identifying a confluence of interest among key stakeholders. In other words, we are skilled at squaring the circle between the private and public sectors and ordinary citizens by addressing the human aspects of issues in a regulatory or business context.

    Working with acumen public affairs means getting:

    • A highly experienced team – that actually does the work
    • Public affairs consultancy – but in the broadest sense
    • Strategic sparring partners – and high quality execution
    • Added value – that doesn’t cost the earth
    • Senior advisors – brimming with fresh ideas
    • Brussels expertise – with international reach
    • Communications counsel – delivering business results
