Transparency

New media – Social media is continuing to change the way business, communities and individuals communicate with Government, whether local, national or international. The transparency agenda is here to stay and understanding social media is now a key component to any advocacy strategy. RJF can provide media surgeries to explain the benefits and pit falls of SM lobbying and advise on specific SM campaigns.

Connectivity

RJF will help you formulate evidence-based policy proposals to take to the legislators in your area.
