Communication strategies

Philipp Mehne



I'm an independent strategy consultant since 2017. If you're thinking about positioning your brand or institution, if you're planning a call for tender, need to review tasks and processes in your communication teams, if you're looking for a workshop moderator or simply for new ideas, I may be who you need. I've learnt the trade in ten years with Scholz & Friends. My last position was head of the Brussels Office. I still hold a framework contract with the European Commission but also count business associations, companies and public institutions among my clients.

How I interpret my role

Within communication agencies, strategy is often treated as one discipline among many. Many times, I've come across strategy units and colleagues that were never involved in campaign implementation and lacked the trial-and-error type experience.

I usually concentrate on strategy and concept. But I can bring the experience from then years of campaign implemenation to the table. I've been through lots of strategy workshops, but also project management, team lead and staff allocation, selection of service providers and cooperation with partner organizations, and, last but not least, financial controlling.

While I maintain no ties to any one particular agency, I'm well connected if you're looking for service providers to help implement your plans.
