Osk launches consulting services for political communication and digital public affairs

Extension of portfolio in the German special election year of 2021


Cologne / Berlin, February 18th, 2021 – Oliver Schrott Kommunikation, a leading German PR and communication agency, is starting off the special election year of 2021 with a new consulting service for political communications and digital public affairs.

For this purpose, the agency is founding a new unit at its Berlin location, headed by Thomas Helm. Helm was previously head of the foreign office of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Kazakhstan. He has many years of experience and extensive expertise in political communications, including as office manager and advisor to the parliamentary management of the CDU/CSU Bundestag group and as a public affairs consultant in a senior position.

“Political decisions and government actions need to be explained and communicated even better, as has been shown not least in the current pandemic,” explained OSK managing director Michael Kemme. “Associations, NGOs and other institutions can communicate their topics and content even better and more broadly in order to get through with their messages and viewpoints. We’re very pleased to have won Thomas Helm, an experienced public affairs consultant and expert on transformation processes in business and the political system, for the development of the new unit.”

The new “Political Communication & Digital Public Affairs” consulting team is based at OSK’s Berlin office on Unter den Linden, at the center of Germany’s political world.

Oliver Schrott Kommunikation has been represented in the capital since acquiring the Berlin-based digital agency Compuccino in 2015. Currently, the OSK tech team of around 20 people works there on digital solutions, tools and platforms for PR and content logistics. The agency has always had a strong footprint in political communications through its work on the digital offerings and presences of political parties and associations.

Content strength and digital competence

“Digitalization and significant social issues have massively changed political communications, but government institutions and associations are still too often focused on classic media and traditional formats. This costs time, reach and relevance,” said Thomas Helm. “From the digital expertise of OSK Berlin and the content strength of the agency, we want to create a new offering which combines in-depth content and state-of-the-art technology – opening up new paths in political communication for our clients.”
