Coalitions

Few interests undertake issue campaigns alone. Finding allies and working with them in an organized fashion is central to influencing legislation and regulation. Democracy moves when large numbers of people combine to make the case together. BGR PR understands this well and has developed an expertise in coalition management. From taxation to transportation, BGR PR has led the communications efforts of large groups of companies and trade associations. United for common purpose and with clear joint communications, the coalitions have been models of efficiency and effectiveness. Large enterprises need steady hands at the helm. BGR PR has offered that repeatedly and is eager to take on more.
