Established in 1998 as the new Assembly took shape, Stratagem connects organisations with politics and gets results. 

In  2019, Stratagem joined forces with Westminster-based public affairs agency Connect, having led the industry in Northern Ireland for over 20 years.

This exciting partnership gives clients the benefit of additional expertise across more sectors as a result of the combined experience of our 50 strong team.

We take your issues and messages, apply our strategic, creative and political know-how, and provide you with the support you need to make meaningful impact.  Whether it is pressing for legislative change, or increasing awareness of your priorities, we can build you a strategy which delivers.
