Director of Regulation & Public Policy, Bolt
Having worked with Riverside since 2012, I have come to rely on their trusted counsel and their razor sharp analysis of international public affairs. Their integrated communications offering, in several different markets, makes for a seriously professional outfit.
Director of External Affairs, Family Action (National School Breakfast Programme)
Family Action is a national charity and we are proud of the work that we do to support disadvantaged families around the country, but we realised that with a higher profile and more support in Parliament we would be even better-placed to maintain and grow our activities. Riverside did a great job in helping us to achieve that outcome, offering us sound advice, based on years of experience, and practical, hands-on support to deliver exactly what we needed.
UK Country Manager, International Air Transport Association (IATA)
Riverside’s expertise in transport and infrastructure policy and detailed understanding of the Department for Transport were absolutely crucial for our political engagement work.
Managing Director, Omnicell, UK
Riverside has been a great partner for Omnicell providing us with sound strategic public affairs advice and helping us implement campaigns we have formulated together. The results we’ve achieved to date have been very encouraging.
Chief Executive, Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management
Riverside has helped us to significantly improve our profile and policy influence in a way that we quite simply would have been unable to do ourselves. Their experience in planning and guiding us through a targeted parliamentary engagement programme has enabled us to make the most of our limited resources whilst maximising our impact at a critical time of political change.
former Executive Director, Haven Gateway Partnership (A120 Campaign)
Riverside were able to come in and work closely with our Partnership. By doing so, we achieved spectacular results. Their hands on approach resulted in mobilising widespread support, and ultimately achieving our ambitious campaign goals.
Head of Public Affairs, ROCKWOOL
Riverside’s understanding of the public sector marketplace was really important for meeting our commercial objectives. They quickly grasped our business across the board, which made the work they delivered all the more valuable.
Director of Corporate Affairs, National Housebuilding Council (NHBC)
We were delighted with Riverside’s delivery of a candidate engagement programme in the run up to the 2015 General Election. Their creative ideas and ‘can do’ attitude were particular plus points, but it was the results achieved that made this project such a success.
Head of Public Affairs, Cable&Wireless Worldwide
I’ve worked with Dave on a number of public affairs campaigns and found his approach to be both innovative and rigorous. In an industry that’s not renowned for its ability to measure outcomes, Dave’s focus on delivering real business results was exactly what I needed.
Managing Director, Care, Partnership Assurance
They consistently provided, and delivered on, ambitious public affairs strategies. I found their creativity and work ethic are second to none.
Marketing and Communications Manager, Abbeyfield
We were really pleased with the excellent attendance we had at our event in the House of Commons, particularly the two Cabinet Ministers who dropped in. It really helped us to introduce ourselves to MPs and to embark upon more strategic political engagement.
Communications and Parliamentary Adviser, National Farmers Union (NFU)
We brought in Riverside to help us focus and professionalise our approach to public affairs and communications. We really benefitted from their message workshops and their advice on engagement with stakeholders – their focus on the fundamentals was just what we needed.
Operations Director, The International School of Protocol & Diplomacy (ISPD)
We really needed someone to come in and revamp our communication and marketing materials – Riverside were able to do that efficiently and to an extremely high standard. We didn’t have a huge budget, but we got significantly more than we asked for.
