Influence is business oriented and houses a thorough knowledge of both the EU and UK political environments. We are therefore best placed to advise businesses on access to the European single market and the UK market, and policy, legal and regulatory changes affecting both.
Influence services are issue-led and data-driven, and combine EU expertise with influence measuring. Our robust analysis and interpretation of developments in the EU-UK relationship allow clients to gauge the impacts of Brexit on their business and how to address them.
Influence is based in the UK and has access to a wide pool of EU experts in the UK, Belgium and France. Our EU experts are experienced watchers of Westminster and Brussels, legal experts policy experts and seasoned diplomats. They understand the Anglo-Saxon business climate and EU politics in equal measure.
Influence is keen to help minimise disruption to trade and business activity, to show the UK is open for business.
Influence was founded by Director Peter Wilding, former Conservative media chief, author of “What Next?” and coiner of the word Brexit. Influence is co-managed by market access expert Sietske de Groot and digital communications specialist David Angell.
