Whyte Corporate Affairs is the leading independent Belgian consultancy specializing in corporate communications, crisis communications, media relations, public affairs and internal communications & change. Founded in 2008 by 4 partners, still on board today, one of the strengths of our agency lies in our integrated approach. We remove barriers between practices, disciplines and teams. And we combine our skills to achieve the best results for our clients - as a cohesive team.
In a world where relationships between companies and their stakeholders are becoming increasingly complex, Whyte has been growing steadily for over a decade.
Our team is our most valuable asset. It has around 35 enthusiastic consultants with very complementary backgrounds, who share the same passion for corporate communication.
Stakeholder oriented, objective driven. That is why we strongly believe in the integration between what is traditionally considered to be ‘corporate communications’ and ‘public affairs’. We tear down the walls and combine the best of both worlds.
Internal communication is about making sense within the organisation, on all levels and at any time.
The days when internal communication was limited to a simple operational function are over. Internal communication has become a strategic tool which contributes directly to the achievement of business goals.
