At Thorn Run Partners, good public affairs work is never an “end unto itself.”
Its value lies only in the ability to drive a specific policy outcome.
In today’s complicated political environment, TRP puts a priority focus on developing creative strategies to deliver real, measurable policy outcomes. But to execute a successful campaign, it can be helpful, sometimes even necessary, to incorporate an imaginative public affairs and media relations component.
TRP Public Affairs maintains strong relationships with the traditional Washington, national and health policy press corps. We have a strong track record of successfully placing Op-Eds and positive stories for clients with leading national publications such as the New York Times, Capitol Hill papers like Roll Call, and thought-leading blogs like Pharmalot. TRP also plans and executes every aspect of top-level policy forums for clients; such as, for example, a recent stakeholder-centered policy roundtable on Capitol Hill, which convened over 75 Washington healthcare thought-leaders.
We also understand how to work the ever-changing platforms of the social media arena. And knowing how to use these communications tools to inform the right people in the right way is the difference between public affairs with a purpose, and public affairs just for the heck of it.
