Select Committees

Role-play the Select Committee with an experienced panel

We prepare individuals and teams to understand ‘what to expect’ and the ‘dos and don’ts’ for Select Committees, regulators or public bodies.

We also replicate and role-play the hearing with an experienced panel. This panel is led by us and often made up of ex-MPs, QCs, Barristers, Journalists and Communication Experts. We ask challenging questions and we scrutinise your answers.  We advise and help shape the language & tone, strategies and techniques that will enable your spokespeople to be fully prepared and perform at their best.

In some cases and if appropriate, we may recommend coaching on a one-to-one basis, to prepare you for your public appearance.

Respect the process, prepare in advance and make the right impact

Select Committees which can be more adversarial in nature, don’t pull their punches when they make conclusions about your actions.

It’s really important to think through the process and experience in advance, so you are in a position to build rapport with the panel, and give a favourable account of you and your organisation, along with a thorough and coherent explanation of your strategy and actions. Those businesses who respect the process, often find that parliamentary hearings and public inquiries represent a unique opportunity for business leaders to state their case.
