The Whitehouse Consultancy is a specialist political and public affairs consultancy advising clients how best to identify, approach and influence the key decision makers of Westminster, Whitehall, Brussels and local government.
We are here to guide our clients through the political processes that determine public policy, to plan a route to success and to ensure they are addressing the right people, in the right way at the right time.
Our extensive experience and involvement in the political life of the UK and Europe enables us to provide guidance on the development and implementation of clearly defined strategies to achieve the objectives of our clients.
Every campaign is different, and we pride ourselves on developing a tailored strategy for each of our clients that best supports their goals. Such a strategy will necessarily involve communications with a wide range of stakeholders and so Whitehouse also offer a full range of marketing and communication services, including media relations, to dovetail with the public affairs activity, in a fully integrated and comprehensive approach.
With offices in both London and Brussels, we are ideally placed at the heart of national and European decision making.
The British Olympic Association
“...the BOA undertook a major political lobbying exercise to convince government and opposition parties of the merits of launching a London bid for 2012 Olympic Games.”
“The political strategy required detailed planning and careful execution if it was to stand any chance of success. Christopher Whitehouse’s guidance in this respect was fundamental to the outcome. A variety of mechanisms were used to engage cross party key decision makers and opinion formers across the whole spectrum impacted on by this multi faceted project, effectively every department of government. There is little doubt that without Christopher’s detailed understanding of Parliament and Whitehall and his excellent contacts that the project would have struggled to get off the ground. To him and all his colleagues at The Whitehouse Consultancy we are most grateful.”
Simon Clegg CBE, Chief Executive of the BOA
“I have been personally impressed with The Whitehouse Consultancy and the team’s ability to mould themselves to our cultures and objectives. They allowed me to discover my own strategy as it changed throughout all the hurdles we overcame. Whitehouse has also helped define a long term business approach which we clearly did not have from the inception. I would recommend their services to anyone, and thanks for all your help.”

UK Sustainable Bio-diesel Alliance
“The strength and success of our campaign was undoubtedly based on a triangle of expertise. Whitehouse, to establish our political strategy and to open doors in Westminster and in Europe; O’Keefe Associates to work with us to establish our key messages and to articulate our case; combined with the producers’ industry knowledge.”
“That partnership secured the immediate future of the sector and created an Alliance which now has a voice in Government and in future policy development affecting our business.”
Mark Sneesby | Chair, UK Sustainable Bio-diesel Alliance
Holland and Barrett Group
“We have benefited greatly from the strategic and tactical guidance of the Whitehouse Consultancy in achieving an acceptable regulatory regime for natural health products. Whitehouse helped demystify the political process and made sure we punched above our weight in the corridors of power in Westminster, Whitehall and Brussels.”
Peter Aldis | Managing Director, Holland and Barrett Group Chair, Health Food Manufacturers Association
