Strategic Communications

With a keen understanding of the intersection between policy and publicity, the Podesta Group has a long record of success in meeting our clients’ PR goals. Whether seeking national press attention or to change a national debate, our skilled experts understand how a clever event, a high profile speech, an online strategy, an editorial board meeting or a smart media placement can add enormous value to a communications campaign.

Most of our senior PR strategists earned their PR stripes in the policy marketplace, serving as communicators in Capitol Hill offices and in the administration, not where products are sold, but where policy decisions are made. The team also benefits from deep experience on the campaign trail, as newspaper, television and online reporters for major news outlets, in the public interest community and in the halls of major corporations. Our savvy media specialists have contacts throughout the national, international and online media, developed over decades of experience – and we have leveraged these relationships during times of crisis for our clients. Whether the situation has required crisis communications, branding, message development, online advocacy or media turnout, our clients have come to rely on the Podesta Group’s unique brand of media strategy to move the needle for success.
