We take pride in being a bi-partisan firm whose team members have diverse public and private sector experiences. The services we proudly offer our clients include:
Lobbying and Advocacy
While many public affairs firms earn most of their living at the State Legislature, we have developed a very diverse practice so we handle only a limited number of clients in this area. We carefully select state and federal legislative clients in different subject areas so that you get the attention you deserve. Then we let our bi-partisan approach and creative problem solving take it from there.
With decades of involvement in Arizona politics and community affairs, our team has the relationships necessary to plan and carry out effective grassroots and/or grasstops campaigns. While too many people rely upon only new wave communications techniques, we can blend the two and more effectively alter public opinion. We also understand the role of public involvement in the NEPA process and have worked closely with clients in this regard.
Whether we are involved in advance of a crisis or when it occurs, CPR immediately assesses the situation and evaluates the client’s desired outcomes. We will also develop an overall plan, a crisis protocol and talking points which communicate the client’s message. If we are working with our client in advance of a crisis, we will produce a crisis binder which will contain the plan, protocol and hour one instructions.
Our keen understanding of how government procures products and services enables PDG to identify and create opportunities to engage this massive and growing market. PDG provides valuable expertise at all stages of the local, county, state and federal governmental procurement process. We have assisted clients in the areas of health care, information technology, emergency services, public works, agency management and operation, and government agency efficiency.
Media Relations & Training
CPR is at the forefront of blending both traditional media approaches and new media strategies (blogs, YouTube and Facebook). Our keen understanding of how reporters think and our knowledge of what they do and do not consider as a story have helped us build better relationships with the media and gain the best possible outcome for our clients. We recognize that our clients know their business better than we do so we spend time training our clients so they can identify potential stories for us and our team makes sure our clients know what to do if the media calls or shows up at their place of business.
Public Policy Meetings
PDG has decades of experience in planning and organizing local, state, regional, national and international political and issue-oriented meetings, town halls, workshops, symposia and rallies. For almost ten years, PDG coordinated all regional workshops and international symposia for the Office Of National Drug Control Policy’s brain science and technology development programs.
Our team works closely with attorneys to ensure that important messages are developed and delivered to employees and customers without compromising pending legal matters. We also support the legal team by communicating issues in the public domain which can move parties in litigation towards settlement.
