Executive search companies Viapublic and Watson Helsby recently published an overview of how the corporate sector organises its EU and Brussels public affairs capability. Both companies joined forces to investigate if there is any such thing as best practice in the context of organising and managing a public affairs presence in Brussels or if there is an universal approach or structure that works best for most companies. Between June and September 2015 both firms interviewed over 30 EU public affairs/government relations heads. The interviews represented multi-nationals from Europe, US and Asia-Pacific.
