Browning & Associates (B&A) is a strategic communications consultancy delivering success for our clients worldwide.

Headquartered in London, we have over 100 senior-level consultants in dozens of countries who design and deliver tailor-made programs that advance the goals of our varied client base – from FORTUNE 500 companies to governments, from NGOs and foundations to individuals.

Corporate

Browning & Associates (B&A) works with senior management on diverse complex challenges linked to the public agenda – typically related to corporate reputation and CSR, new market entry or government policy – in countries around the world.

As trusted advisors to some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs and corporate boards, we quickly set up teams of the most senior strategic consultants with decades of experience tailored to client needs. We then design or implement smart communications strategies that deliver results for companies and their stakeholders.

Our sectoral experience spans finance, energy, transport, shipping, infrastructure, healthcare and agriculture.

Our environmental business, Browning Environmental, also works with companies on issues specifically related to the environment.

Brexit

On June 23 2016, the citizens of the United Kingdom voted narrowly to leave the European Union. This has created a significant amount of upheaval in terms of the political and business agenda in the country. The result is risks but also opportunities for most businesses.

Browning & Associates (B&A) has a network of consultants monitoring developments on a daily basis, who can provide reliable intelligence, counsel and support on all Brexit-related issues, whether long-term or immediate.

Public Procurement

Browning & Associates help our clients to win tenders by producing clear, compliant and compelling proposals.

We can assemble a bid team and maximise their potential through effective management to develop a persuasive tender that scores highly, demonstrates maximum value to the customer, and stands out from the competition.

We have consulted on tens of billions of pounds of public procurement bids in the UK, Middle East and south east Asia, with an extremely high strike rate. Our specialist areas include transportation, infrastructure/construction and healthcare.

Litigation Support

Browning & Associates regularly provide communications support around various forms of litigation in the UK and Europe, including the High Court in London and ICC arbitration courts in Paris.

We help lawyers and clients to navigate public opinion by communicating their case effectively. Our aim is to successfully support legal actions or defences, and to protect reputation. We have acted in a range of domestic and international disputes, in particular in relation to disputed foreign investments, complex claims for damages and divorce proceedings.

Crisis Management

Browning & Associates (B&A) has decades’ experience working with senior business people on preparing for crises or advising them in the heat of a crisis.

Crisis preparedness is about devoting time and budget to ascertaining the key risksfor an organization, and setting up systems that are robust enough to minimize the damage and either return to business-as-usual or take the necessary steps for anew era.

Crisis management is about ensuring the right advice is close to hand and that there is a network of individuals who can quickly deliver results that correspond to the best approach to resolving the crisis.

In both cases B&A has some of the world’s best crisis managers available 24/7 in most regions of the world.

Browning & Associates (B&A) has multi-lingual teams of consultants working on a networked basis in over 30 countries worldwide.

They have helped governments and government agencies achieve their goals in challenging situations including war, terrorism or political instability, or more conventional campaigns on FDI, tourism, human development and the environment for example. We have also worked with politicians from around the world seeking support beyond their home countries.
