Public Affairs

As a leading consultancy specializing in public affairs, Tunheim understands the complex intersection of public policy, stakeholders, media and decision-makers.

Tunheim is also proud to offer an innovative advocacy service that helps organizations discover hidden relationships.

We treat every issue like a campaign by helping clients understand the politics and relationships that could make an issue win or lose. Whether you are looking to formulate your public-policy position or build a diverse advocacy coalition, Tunheim achieves positive results. We use deep insight and vast experience to develop a thoughtful strategy, leveraging relationships, communications (traditional and digital), and grassroots assets. We tell our clients what they need – not want – to hear in order to achieve results.

In today’s complex regulatory and public policy environment, organizations need more committed and educated employees and stakeholders to influence decision makers. Likewise, organizations need better alignment and communications with employees when engaging on difficult policy issues. PropoNET is an innovative service that engages an organization’s employees, captures their authentic relationships and willingness to help, and then educates, motivates and activates them on the organization’s behalf.
