TWC Associates

Strategy Consultants

About Us

TWC was established in 2008.

We are a small boutique consultancy specialising in the development of political strategy for a wide range of corporate and non-corporate clients.

Based in London, TWC comprises highly experienced professionals, capitalising on many years participation in both UK and international politics and business.

As external advisors, TWC does not attempt to represent the specific experiences of our clients since they will always have a greater understanding and knowledge of their own business.

Our expertise lies in understanding the political landscape and how it works; and our role is to help guide our clients through what appears to many outsiders as a very complicated structure.

We provide insight and knowledge on the difficulties of the parliamentary and legislative system using our expertise to overcome these complexities.

We help our clients to craft political strategies that are relevant to their own needs; and then we assist them in creating the best arguments to further their strategic and corporate objectives.

As they put that strategy into practice, we advise them on opportunities and potential pitfalls throughout the process and work with them to help deliver successful outcomes.
