Global Multipliers

Thatcher+Co. has deep and specialized experience working with country governments, heads of state, ambassadors, and corporate executives in countries throughout the world.

Thatcher+Co.’s country work is multiplied through a unique and powerful joint partnership with the Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU). Together we spotlight successes in countries pursuing branding and investment opportunities or those facing particular media challenges, driving positive media coverage and investment interest in under-the-radar, misperceived and challenging frontier markets.

BCIU has conducted more than 200 international trade and investment promotion events every year since its founding by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1955.

The organization is a premiere business association supported by 200 corporate members, including many iconic companies spanning the globe such as Coca-Cola, Google, Citigroup, Boeing and Pfizer. Thatcher+Co. and BCIU’s partnership specialty is promoting international understanding through dialogue and action by organizing media briefings and roadshows as well as off-the-record discussions between senior government officials and key business executives on issues of common concern. We do this by facilitating public-private partnerships in the global marketplace and by assisting stakeholders with problem-solving in turbulent situations and emerging markets. BCIU provides an ongoing venue for its member companies and potential investors to interact with heads of state, chiefs of government, cabinet ministers and senior officials of multilateral and international organizations. BCIU has extensive contacts in the power sector, including with project developers, renewable energy, smart grid, utilities, infrastructure investors, EPC firms and equipment suppliers. BCIU works closely with EXIM, OPIC, USTDA and the World Bank. BCIU has offices in New York, Washington and London and senior advisors in 10 countries.

Thatcher+Co., as a leader in worldwide strategic media relations and communications campaigns, takes BCIU’s international work one step further by leveraging its access to a global network of journalists in print, television, radio, digital and social media.

Together, our teams specialize in country campaigns around the world and strategic communications for multinational corporate powerhouses. Thatcher+Co.’s country work has taken its team to Egypt, Kenya, the Republic of Congo, South Africa, Japan, Turkey, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Jordan, Kuwait, Pakistan, and many other countries around the world. In the past decade, BCIU and Thatcher+Co. have conducted investor and media outreach events in 19 countries and 17 U.S. cities.
