As a public affairs professional, your success depends on helping your clients, industry, or company navigate political and reputational risks and identify policy and business opportunities. Delve helps professionals like you change outcomes across industry sectors by delivering actionable insights built for public affairs. Our work on a wide spectrum of business-critical issues means Delve is uniquely qualified to provide you with intelligence for impact.
Protecting Your Brand & Interests
At Delve, we call it the “Information Advantage.” Public affairs challenges are increasingly professionalized, digitized, and nationalized (or even globalized), enabling competing stakeholders to attract wider audiences who often only hear messaging from one side of an issue. Delve helps organizations understand the new operating landscape, anticipate threats, and achieve their business and policy objectives.
Identifying Stakeholders & Centers of Influence
You can’t stop the conversation, but we can help you successfully shape, guide, and inform it. We identify the key stakeholders and coalitions behind those campaigns as well as their motivations and specific objections. Our unique approach further uncovers their methods of operation, communication channels, sources of funding, key personnel, and past activities allowing our clients to anticipate their next move.
Understanding and Overcoming Opposition
In this new age of activism, our clients’ key initiatives are often met with highly organized and highly effective opposition campaigns. These campaigns use a sophisticated and proven playbook—and it often works. Uncovering the who, what, and why of these campaigns offers an unparalleled strategic advantage. Below are examples of how we uncover the web of influence orchestrated against our clients and how those insights inform the strategy to advance their agendas.
Anticipating Trends & Challenges
You have to see around corners to know what’s coming. Delve offers the unique ability to identify threats before they escalate. Our “early warning system” includes briefings, trend reports, and robust issue tracking tools, allowing clients to develop a proactive strategic response rather than reacting in real-time as a potential crisis unfolds and shape the narrative to their advantage.
