How we help BT
- Comprehensive committee reports
Monitoring committees is time-consuming, with committees meeting as often as every two or three days. BT’s dedicated contacts at DeHavilland deliver comprehensive reports that highlight the issues with potential impacts and opportunities in communications, digital and tech.
- Enabling product and service development
Digital inclusion is one of BT’s key areas of interest. Government has a significant bearing on opportunities and responsibilities and BT’s strategy for outstripping the competition. DeHavilland’s monitoring of parliament’s perceptions and expectations of BT and its competitors enables the corporate affairs team to feed vital intelligence to product teams.
- Keeping close to key contacts
For BT, having insights into the activities of the DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport), relationships with industry regulators, and the views of MPs is important. Monitoring reports and DeHavilland’s real-time database of political figures helps BT stay close to MPs.
- An eye on legislation
Monitoring key dates for early day motions, parliamentary questions, readings, pre-legislative scrutiny and primary and secondary legislation and any announcements is time-critical yet too time-consuming for BT’s teams. They don’t want the detail; they need to know the wider implications; DeHavilland’s reports incorporate that crucial contextual understanding.
