Overview
Speyside 360° is a global public policy monitoring and analysis service

providing visibility and granular insights on policy and political developments in key markets,

as well as strategic counsel on how to potentially mitigate issues and exploit commercial opportunities.

Our approach to intelligence gathering is based on:

Highly-connected local consultants with deep contacts and knowledge

International project managers who are able to ensure targeted research and deliver contextualized insights

Our in-country consultants go beyond formal information sources and conversations with a narrow group of regulators and legislators, to build up a broad and balanced picture of the public policy environment.

In addition to single county reporting for local leadership teams, we deliver integrated, succinct regional reports that prioritize issues and opportunity across the region as a whole, allowing regional or global clients to get a holistic view and prioritize action accordingly.

 Unique approach
 
Speyside 360° is centrally managed by a single project manager so the client has a single point of contact to deliver integrated reports and to serve as a liaison with any market, 24/7
 
We provide real-time alert system is offered which ensures that critical developments or new issues that arise are flagged immediately, along with an analysis on likely next steps and ability to impact/influence outcomes
 
Our in-country consultants are hand-picked and are exceedingly well-connected, allowing them to become aware of and alert on key issues and developments at the onset; often before the information has entered the public realm
 
Standard reporting (daily, weekly, monthly) is complemented by briefing calls between our senior local consultants and clients; highlighting critical issues, exploring commercial and competitive implications and discussing the best course of action
 
Because our in-country consultants are all based in-market, when actions are implemented in response to a critical issue, they are well-placed to support on the ground, in collaboration with the company's local teams as/when needed
