A STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY
FROM A DIFFERENT PLACE
To get to a better place, try starting from a different one
Charlotte Street Partners provides effective and trusted advice to companies, institutions and individuals.
We are skilled advisors in long-term reputation and brand management, crisis and special situations, employee engagement and media and political relations.
Traditional strategic communications companies were not born in the world they now inhabit; Charlotte Street Partners was.
Schooled in traditional corporate communications, we are at the same time agile navigators of today's fast-moving and unpredictable media streams. Already one of the most talked about strategic communications agencies in the UK, Charlotte Street Partners has an ambition to be amongst the most respected and trusted practitioners in its field.
Strategy, counsel, coaching, perspective, planning and execution
We will work with your executive team or your communications function to provide a high-quality service to your business, across all communications – internal and external.
Our team has experience of leading and working in some of the most demanding in-house communications teams in the UK, as well as acting as external advisors to global brands and institutions. Whatever the challenge, we always think from our clients’ perspective.
We offer a full range of communications services and are skilled advisors in communications, reputation and brand management, crisis and special situations, employee engagement and media and political relations. We work with a number of senior and highly experienced individuals as Consulting Partners bringing special areas of expertise, experience and focus to our client work.
Our long form opinion pieces are written by all the members of the team on subjects as diverse as housing and homelessness, feminism, Saudi Arabian politics and the climate emergency.
This blog includes the 'Read on the street', A short digest of the more interesting highlights from our reading, listening and viewing each week.
We are all guilty of being too inwardly focused sometimes, especially as we navigate these changed times. It is all too easy to be caught up in the problems close to home, and for overarching trends to pass us by.
To remedy that short-sightedness, Charlotte Street Partners has enlisted the ingenuity and talent of the writer and commentator Alex Massie. As our new correspondent at large, Alex will look at the bigger picture for us each Wednesday. We have challenged him to come up with something a bit different: broad, lateral thinking, thematic insights and a more global perspective.
Alex is a freelance journalist and commentator based in Edinburgh. Not only is he Scotland editor of The Spectator, but he also writes a political column for The Times and The Sunday Times.
HOW IT STARTED
Charlotte St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 1RJ
Not surprisingly, the idea to form a new company was conceived on Charlotte Street in London. In the Charlotte Street Hotel to be precise.
Our two founding partners, Malcolm Robertson and Andrew Wilson, had spent a tumultuous decade at airport operator BAA and RBS respectively, learning – often the hard way - about the importance of a long-term, strategic view of reputation to organisations and those who lead them.
The idea discussed that night and then in more detail for the ensuing 12 months was to establish a new kind of agency; one that thinks about challenges from a different perspective and one which prepares organisations and leaders to better represent themselves and more importantly to not leave advisers to do that job for them.
At the heart of our philosophy is a belief that businesses in particular should do more to engage with all parts of society, and we practice what we preach – taking on pro bono work for charities and good causes when the opportunities arise and living our core values every day.
FIVE CORE VALUES
Difference, candour, mutuality, positivity and excellence
