    Goals / Remit

    We ensure our clients communicate their stories to the audience that matter most to their brands, their businesses and their issues. There are few issues or challenges we haven’t faced – from helping clients manage and protect their reputations, navigate change, drive brand awareness, or advance policy change. Our diverse team consistently deliver bold yet pragmatic campaigns and strategies that ensure our clients' goals are met. Good communications is about emphasising simplicity, creativity and quality. Relationships matter, and details count. Having helped clients navigate the Brussels and Belgian media and policy scenes for over five decades, our expertise today acknowledges the increasing impact of social and digital media on the way people find, share and interact with information.

    Main EU files targeted

    Given Hill+Knowlton Strategies' broad client base, our advice to our clients focuses on all areas of EU policy making. These range from energy and environment, transport, financial services, food and consumer affairs, sustainability, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, agriculture and fisheries, information and communication technologies, media, defence, intellectual property, professional services, diplomatic relations, travel, chemicals and industrial policies.

    18 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
