How we help Severn Trent
- Vital alerts
Our alerts tell Severn Trent what’s happening only when it’s important to them. Timing is critical in public affairs and communicating with other parts of the business. Once the Severn Trent Government Affairs team gets the facts from us, they can go about their work with all the relevant people in their business, from the CEO down.
- Tailored, timesaving reports
The Water Daily Round-up is super-useful for Severn Trent. It’s an early warning system for Severn Trent and a useful way of making sure everyone in the team knows what’s coming up. The Government Affairs Team at Severn Trent are able to use their time effectively because there’s no need for them to disseminate detailed policy information. DeHavilland does it for them.
- Easy access to stakeholder profiles
The Severn Trent team use DeHavilland’s PeoplePoint platform to gauge the policy positions of MPs and especially Ministers. They can see whether politicians have an interest in any part of Severn Trent’s wide-ranging business, from the environment to clean water, and from land management to regulation. The memberships of the relevant Select Committees – the Environmental Audit Committee, the EFRA Committee and any others – are only clicks away.
Responsive and friendly service
There are times when the Severn Trent Government Affairs team need information or answers to questions quickly. DeHavilland’s policy team will respond and get the heart of the issue with speed. DeHavilland give Severn Trent the information they need when they need it and the team genuinely care about the quality of their work and the service they provide.
DeHavilland provides us with comprehensive daily updates on developments tailored to match our requirements. If anything needs to change, DeHavilland provides a speedy friendly response to ensure we have what we need, when we need it.Andrew FairburnHead of Government Affairs at Severn Trent plc
