Brunswick Insight - Intern, Fall 2016

The Firm

Brunswick is an international corporate communications partnership that helps businesses and other organizations address critical communications challenges. We started in London in 1987 and have grown organically into a private partnership with offices in 23 cities around the world. Today, we have over 130 Partners – senior professionals from a range of industry backgrounds including media, government and finance – and a total staff of more than 900. In the U.S. we have offices in New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Dallas/Fort Worth. We help clients deal with challenges that can affect their valuation, corporate reputation or ability to achieve business objectives by developing strategies to best communicate both externally (to investors, the media and other stakeholders) and internally (to current and prospective employees).

Brunswick Insight is the Group’s opinion research practice, specializing in assessing the opinion environment around global business issues, monitoring brand health, data-driven message development, crisis opinion polling and tracking corporate reputation. Operating globally, we use a range of qualitative and quantitative research techniques to help companies and organizations inform and measure their communications and business strategies.
