Watson | what we do

Watson works with you to achieve your communications and public affairs objectives. Decades of experience, combined with wide networks across media and politics, allow us to guide your organisation and achieve great results. Our consultants have advised Prime Ministers ,Ministers, CEOs and Chairmen/women.

The Watson team combines employed staff and a network of Australia's leading consultants.

We are disrupters by nature. Together we have over 20 years experience in media, campaigns, advocacy & lobbying, policy and the law, managing communications, issues, policy processes and government relations.

This places us in a unique position on the national political stage as we are independent and not aligned to any party or agenda. In this way, our approach is bi-partisan - we can and have engaged with governments, corporates and individuals from across the political spectrum.
