It often happens that companies end-up in trouble or find difficulties when they enter a market without first “knocking at the government’s door” or simply not taking the time to extensively explain strategies. In strategic sectors such as defense, energy or infrastructures, this diplomatic move is absolutely a must.
Corporations need to talk to governments at the highest level directly and without interferences and/or the classic intermediaries. We open the doors discreetly; and keep them open afterwards.
Corporate diplomacy often requires strong corporate intelligence as a previous analysis, while corporate advocacy at other levels would be commonly called lobbying. A classic mission in corporate diplomacy is introducing our clients to key businessmen (board level), potential partners, investors or officials in the countries we are active (government level, MP, etc.) as well as clarifying sometimes complicated relationships or decrypting behaviors or local inter-relations.
