Gatehouse provides tailored geostrategic support.
In complex geopolitical environments, we interpret developments and advise clients on their strategic positioning and tactical decision-making.
Direct client support: the core Gatehouse team, with decades of corporate and policy-making experience, are supplemented by our network of over 2,500 market specialists who provide nuanced insight and advice – the experienced practitioners who understand the mechanisms and processes that will define outcomes.
Gatehouse’s structure allows us to build bespoke advisory teams that reflect our clients’ unique requirements. We recognise that interpreting geopolitical developments is only half of the challenge. More valuable is the ability to define the on-the-ground impact and fine tune the response.
Gatehouse’s Geostrategic Service supports decision-makers, and is normally provided on a retained basis. Think of it as a National Security Council for your business, supported by a global corps of experts. This offering is tailored to the client’s requirements and blends horizon scanning, trend analysis, issue management and policy support. Typically this service includes regular:
- Geostrategy Councils: assessing the geopolitical backdrop and setting the Geostrategic Agenda for the client
- Market/Thematic sessions: deep dive on an agreed topic, facilitated by Gatehouse and incorporating select members of the expert network
- Geopolitical updates: ongoing intel reporting on identified geographies, sectors and policy priorities
Tactical Support (Projects)
These are typically standalone projects surrounding specific transactions or operational decisions. These projects assess the geopolitical considerations/constraints and follow a careful process, concluding in a robust set of recommendations.
Projects tend to take one of the three following forms:
- 2-6 Week Sprint
- Rapid Assumptions Test
- Single Topic Briefing
Gatehouse project teams can be deployed at any point in a decision cycle – from origination, through implementation, to exit.
In many territories good geopolitical advice has been impossible to find; Gatehouse always provides a cast of minds on how to consider a problem and uncover solutions
