EU4U The Network Awakens!
You can wait for years for someone to come along who can help you battle your way through the Brussels undergrowth, and then, just like London buses, three of them arrive together! To launch 2016, three of the bigger names in European affairs are cementing their already fruitful alliance to create EU4U The Expert Network – a seriously talented nexus of professional heavy-hitters.
“We’re a team, with all the advantages that brings, but sure, we’re more than that,” says Anna Macdougald, a veteran of more than 30 years in the Brussels beltway. “Our network of contacts goes from the political to the scientific, from legal experts to top communicators. We can apply any combination of skills to whatever challenge is thrown at us.”
Herself an economics grad with a Masters in European Studies from Trinity, Dublin, Anna is joined by Charlotte Roffiaen, who counts the prestigious Sciences Po and the Sorbonne among her alma maters, where she studied business and European law. The trio of founding partners is completed by Christophe Duflos, whose background in history, and subsequent studies in telematics and organisation have equipped him to drive so many high-value projects forward.
“It’s a great concept,” Charlotte agrees, “As a client you don’t have to buy into faceless top-heavy consultancies where high-priced services are fronted by a stagiaire. EU4U The Expert Network has a bedrock of expertise ready to work with you direct, with specialists targeted at whatever you want to achieve in Europe and beyond.”
Based in Brussels, Paris and Rome, EU4U is looking to expand its already growing network. If you’re a professional, in any discipline, who loves nothing more than nurturing businesses, organisations and individuals to greater success with their aspirations in Europe, then talk to us about becoming an Associate Partner. And of course, if you represent one of those businesses or organisations, and need any kind of helping hand to find your way in Europe, just pick up the phone.
“But learning which doors to knock on, and who to talk to is only half the battle,” chimes in Christophe, “You have to understand the real subtleties of gaining influence in the European machine.”
And EU4U The Expert Network aims to help clients to do just that. Find out how!
Spruce up your European profile
Accessing the European decision-making process can be complicated. We get you up to speed, and help you put your message together and present your case.
Benefit from the same networks and information as if you were in Brussels, increase your ability to influence, without increasing costs, and become a player recognised by the European institutions.
Write, rewrite, edit, translate - impress!
Your work in Europe could mean taking a deep breath and diving into a scary unfamiliar language. We'll help you write simply and persuasively, whether it's English or French, and then get our top translators to finish the job.
We can take responsibility for the whole thing, fine-tuning what you have to say for a Euro audience, or just give you a few pointers. Your choice.
Expertise at your service
Putting a European project to bed requires a special skill set, which is not always top priority in an organisation winning a contract.
We can step in to help plan all stages of your project so that everything goes smoothly. Or if you prefer you can turn over running just part of a contract to us.
Our knowledge and methods could be vital to your success in the European landscape.
Given the chance we bring your team up to speed in a very short time. What do you need?
We analyse your goals so that we can target training to your precise needs, whether it's content or your precious time and resources.
