  • #FHYearofChange: Our new video series to anticipate the changes of 2019

    June 20, 2018

    2019 represents the “Year of Change” for the European Union, with a new European Parliament, a new political leadership for the European Commission, and the formal departure of the UK as a member of the EU. Given these institutional changes and the reduced regulatory/policy activities, some organisations might think that a reduced focus towards Brussels is justified. Yet, we believe that these developments are critical for all organisations. Since these new officials will shape policy-making...

  • Working with Social Influencers to Tell Your Organisation’s Story

    June 5, 2018

    Obviously, you've already heard of social influencers. Not just because I wrote about them here - though I'd feel blessed to think so - but because they've gathered a lot of attention in the marketing world in the past 4-5 years. From our experience, this trend goes beyond companies and their need to sell products. For us at FH, these trusted "experts" with a large online following represent a clear opportunity for organisations to spark conversations and shape minds in the public...

  • Brussels bubble digital folks: beware the way of the webmaster

    January 16, 2018

    "Digital" has now fully entered the mainstream of EU policy advocacy which is a blessing (because progress) but partly a curse because digital is most often defined by its lowest common denominator (most easily understood) component: social media. Many organisations realise they need "digital" which to them means they need to hire someone with digital in her/his title to run their social feeds, which means that community management and social content creation are often the...

  • The 3 conversations on digital and social communications in the Brussels bubble

    November 3, 2017

    In the Brussels bubble we've got a unique, vibrant conversation about digital and social communications. It's important to realise though that there are actually a few different conversations happening within that bigger one. My take on the most obvious three: The "public communication" conversation, driven by the EU institutions with their need to reach huge numbers across the continent, usually with a message about the benefits of the EU or something that helps engage citizens...
