Portland is a fully integrated communications consultancy

At Portland, we strive to combine high level strategic counsel with quality execution. Across our targeted network of offices we have the right people, with the right expertise, and the right attitude.

 

We draw on experience across the political world and global institutions spanning Downing Street and Whitehall to the EU institutions, the French National Assembly and the Bundestag, the UN and the WHO.

Our roster of former editors from a wide range of media outlets know how traditional media is changing and explain how to cut through.

Our team of digital brains apply the lessons of the world’s most effective grassroots mobilisation campaigns and know how to change the conversation.

And our team of creative designers and brand strategists produce powerful content that ensures our clients reach their audiences with impact – whether through a website, app, video production, railway station takeover or interactive data visualisation.

They combine with heavyweights in financial PR, healthcare, law, philanthropy and internal communications. Together we get to the point – bringing focus, clarity and driving impact.
