Herman Schepers, Founder and Director
“I’ve practiced public affairs and advocacy all over the world for more than 20 years. During this time I’ve worked for global companies, associations and agencies. I’ve built successful advocacy teams, led campaigns and managed complex regulatory and policy work. I’ve also sat on both sides of the client/consultant fence and know what clients expect and what consultants can deliver. Too often there is a mismatch between the two.
That’s why I have set up a bespoke, global consultancy focused on connectivity and digital policy issues that impact all sectors. We offer our clients a flexible group of experts with the right experience, knowledge and networks that come together as Policy Impact Partners. PIP is a flexible consultancy platform where individually, or together, we offer advice to clients without the associated overheads of a large consultancy firm, and with the guarantee of only senior and experienced consultants.
Our core team is highly skilled and experienced. Between us we have led tech associations, run major global and EU focussed advocacy campaigns, driven policy at the highest levels within government, and provided government affairs guidance to some of the biggest names in tech and across sectors. If the projects we undertake for our clients require additional local expertise or insights, we draw on our carefully selected consultant network to provide the necessary global reach, including in-country analysis and advocacy support.”
Here is how we approach our work, and how PIP can support you.
