Hand in hand with government relations is the need to strategically align and implement effective stakeholder engagement and communication strategies. The SAS Group can help you to identify and map key stakeholders and influencers, prepare a stakeholder engagement strategy and develop a related communications program to engage government and non-government organisations, industry bodies and your staff, suppliers, clients and associates.

Through identifying those key stakeholders that can support your business strategies and goals, your organisation will benefit from engaging in meaningful communication with them. Third-party engagement and subsequent endorsement can be especially powerful, particularly during periods of major activity or organisational change such as mergers, takeovers or restructuring.

From regular bulletins and emails to one-off brochures and information kits, we can give you the tools you need to ensure your most important stakeholders understand your direction and support your vision.

Sound planning and a clear-eyed understanding of the landscape are critical to achieving success in a government relations campaign. The SAS Group can help you develop effective, evidence-based argument and policy to support your campaign. Our team consistently researches and analyses government and opposition policies, giving you access to instant and comprehensive information on potential opportunities and obstacles for your business.

We can undertake audits of your existing government, corporate or media relations activities, as well as those of your competitors. We can assess those tactics that have worked previously, and help you refine the ones that are yet to succeed. We then use this information to develop a strategy that supports your overall business plan.  

In the increasingly complex environment that connects government, industry and business, making your voice heard can seem like an impossible task. The SAS Group can help you with effective government relations strategies, supported by an experienced and capable team, to maximise your chances of success.

Our services include:

  • Strategic reviews and counsel to interface effectively with government, industry and the public;
  • Persuasive advocacy in relation to policy, priorities and programs; and
  • Relationship management, networking, engagement and consultation with political representatives, government officials and business leaders.

The SAS Group is your trusted partner for government, media and corporate engagement.
