In my activity, related to public affairs, I follow two basic principles:


1. A business is done only when both parties win, meaning a win-win situation.

In a win-win situation both parties come out on top.

The other two situations, namely win-lose or lose-lose, are not to be found in my portfolio of working methods as they result in only one winner or none which translates into a game without stake, the theory of such type of game not being viable in business.

So a win-win situation is desirable and is the situation I want to generate so as everybody comes out winning.


2. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

In my opinion, it is impossible to get something for nothing.

In the public affairs business if these two principles are respected, then the communication between the parties, namely the private investor and the public authority involved, will be thus built so as to both understand and correctly and efficiently apply their substance. Only this kind of investment projects can materialise.

Experience

For me, Nothing is Impossible!

“I am sometimes asked why Companies, particularly large and very large ones, also known as Transnational Companies, resort to my Public Affairs/Lobbying services to send their important messages to Decision-Makers from various sectors.

My answer is always the same and is based on a simple mathematical rule: assuming that there are two points A and B, where A is the Company and B the problem that needs solving, the shortest distance between the two points being the straight line, such straight line would be my efficient solution to the problem.

However, it is also possible to get from point A to point B without me, by taking zigzag, indirect, tangled, much more irregular paths than a straight line, which involves additional costs and time, i.e. losses.

And then, in order to avoid uselessly losing money and time, those Companies choose to work with me.”
