ENVIRONMENTAL PROTESTS

 

RSC Associates has extensive experience of working with organisations to raise their profile and hold meetings with key influencers and policy makers. We are currently working very closely with a European based satellite broadband company which offers fast broadband speeds to rural and semi-rural communities. During our lobbying activity for them we have secured meetings with MPs in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, County Councils, LEPs and other relevant departments, such as BDUK. This is very much a rural service and we have worked closely with MPs and other officials and influencers to deliver a solution to a rural problem. In Scotland particularly, we had the difficult objective of needing to change the perception of satellite following an unsuccessful trial project carried out by a competitor which damaged the credibility of the industry in the Highlands and Islands. We arranged several meetings with relevant rural MSPs, made suggestions to the Scottish government about how they could increase demand for broadband in Scotland with their intervention, increased the awareness of our client in Scotland and ensured the government were fully appraised of the services they offer and how the economy of Scotland would benefit from more access to broadband. We had excellent success with the campaign and our client is now in the process of fulfilling a number of different projects there.

We have a proven methodology for gaining our clients’ access to the right MP, government department or committee where there is real relevance to your requirements and in the public interest.
