Public Affairs in time of Covid-19: Navigating a new reality

Friday 27 March, 2020

As the second week of official lockdown comes to an end, we want to share with you our initial takes on how this unprecedented crisis might affect the way we do Public Affairs in Brussels.

Nobody can state with certainty what the consequences of this global crisis will be, but we can affirm that it has the potential to change the way we approach public and policy communications. Besides the operational changes we have had to embrace during this time of lockdown – like replacing physical meetings with web conferences – we think that our business will come out of this crisis transformed, hopefully for the better.

As a proponent of change through value generation, Weber Shandwick stands ready to support our clients and partners in navigating the new and more complex communications reality that will emerge from this period of collective challenges.

We hope that our preliminary analysis will help you in these times of uncertainty and more importantly we hope that we will be able to discuss these in person (or virtually!) soon!

Kind regards,
Mónica Vicente Cristina
