The Kēryx in ancient times inaugurated and summoned heads to attend the high-level summits of the ancient world. They were the inviolable messengers and heralds between states, even in time of war, proclaiming meetings of assembly, councils or courts of law. The Keryx Group continues to bring people together, transcending borders and removing obstacles to business development.

Our Philosophy - we build your partnerships.

 

The Kēryx were a profession of heralds that inaugurated and summoned heads to attend the high-level summits of the ancient world. They were the inviolable messengers and heralds between states, even in time of war, proclaiming meetings of assembly, councils or courts of law. We call ourselves The Keryx Group as both a nod to the ancient profession, and as a constant reminder of who we are, the trusted messengers of the power-brokers of today.

 

In the 21st century, the public affairs profession is evolving. All too often, public affairs firms offer a one-way communication push from "us to them". The Keryx Group offers a collaborative, problem-solving approach to public affairs that brings all the stakeholders back to the table. The Keryx Group is a partnership management group.

 

Our role is to keep lines of communication open. The Keryx Group builds relationships and manages the partnerships amongst various stakeholders. We provide the neutral space necessary to hold mediation in cross-cultural and cross-sectoral encounters. We pursue the talks until a brokered conclusion has been reached. We provide access, advisory, public affairs support; we organize meetings and roundtables. We manage joint initiatives, task forces, coalitions, alliances and business communities. We make room for the discussions that lead to real accomplishments by managing today's increasingly complex list of stakeholders.

 

Our world-view is deeply influenced by our Central European roots. Today our operations may extend from our pro-bono work in South Africa to our partnerships in Brussels, but our roots in Central Europe keep us aware of our core values of economic and personal freedom. We support a thriving business environment, democratic accountability and stakeholder engagement.

 

The Keryx Group promotes thought leadership initiatives that adheres to these core principles.

 

 

 

We maintain strong links with think tanks such as the Aspen Institute, Prague; the Community of Democracies, Warsaw; the European Forum Alpbach, Austria; the German Marshall Fund, Brussels; demosEuropa, Warsaw; the Wroclaw Global Forum (an initiative of the Atlantic Council), and we were invited to participate in the Genshagen civil society roundtable talks.

 

We are currently involved in the urban development policy in the European Union. We find ourselves often representing the only voice of Central and Eastern Europe in Smart City policy dialogues. We sit on the Finance Committee of the E.U. "Smart City Stakeholders Platform"; we are a member of the group writing the E.U. Smart City RoadMap.

 

By multiplying partnerships, the Keryx Group broadens your horizons, creates markets and draws diverse industries, actors and geographies together.
