H/Advisors Cicero provided completely integrated communications advisory, including crisis comms, media relations and public affairs. This helped the leadership of OBIE steady the ship after a period of intense disruption and uncertainty and remain focussed on the delivery of the CMA’s order.
Despite the many challenging scenarios faced during our continuing engagement with the OBIE, the organisation is very well positioned to see Open Banking achieve its full potential. Our agile approach to communications is shaped by an ability to call on technical experts spanning public affairs, crisis communications and in-house research and campaigns professionals, at a moments notice. This enables our clients to contend with the unforeseeable and move forward their planned agenda simultaneously. It is this ability that helped place OBIE in the position it is today.Adam Taylor, Managing Director Corporate Communications
