Public Sector market research

Olly Wright, EVP, Public

At Savanta we specialise in corporate reputation and public policy, bridging the worlds of research and communications, to inform strategies and help organisations communicate effectively to bring about behavioural change.

We have extensive experience conducting research to advise and support public, third and private sector organisations, helping them to understand current public narratives and shape the development of future strategic communications. Our experience of working with public bodies such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Commonwealth Secretariat, Arts Council England, Home Office, and Department of Health ensures that we bring an intelligent and sensitive approach to all our work. Our expertise also extends to regularly speak at conferences and events to provide thought leadership on how organisations can better communicate change and engage with their target audiences.

How we help clients

Develop compelling thought leadership for PR

Employee and stakeholder engagement

Critical for projects that affect multiple stakeholders is the ability to engage with all of your core audiences. Bring them along on the journey and ensure all their views are taken into account when developing, refining or evolving your offer. We work with you to ensure all surveys and interviews are appropriate for each of your specific audiences.
