Connect Communications & Helen Johnson Consulting Limited announce an association
Connect Communications and Helen Johnson Consulting Limited (HJCL) – the two independent agencies owned and led by women – are pleased to announce that they have formed an association, to take effect from 1st August 2012.
The association acknowledges and looks to build upon the complementary capabilities and strengths of the two consultancies: Connect Communications is highly regarded as a full service public affairs, policy and communications consultancy, with clients spanning a diverse range of sectors, whereas HJCL is well-known as a specialist boutique healthcare consultancy.
The association will focus on ways to harness the joint firepower and specialist skills of both consultancies, as well as investing in staff development through exchanges and shared learning programmes.
Gill Morris, CEO of Connect Communications, said: “This is incredibly exciting news and both Connect and HJCL working together is a dream combination. There are few specialist agencies with the strength of reputation of HJCL and I know by working together we are bound to provide a unique specialist and winning proposition in the public affairs marketplace.”
Helen Johnson, MD of HJCL said: “We’re delighted to be linking up with Connect in this way. Connect has an enviable – and richly deserved – reputation for its public affairs and policy work and we’re very excited by the opportunities that our partnership presents – not just for the two consultancies, but for our clients and staff as well.”

HJCL is currently working with a number of commercial and voluntary sector clients on a range of healthcare policy and political projects, on themes ranging from diabetes, vaccines, arthritis, cancer and public health, to NHS reforms, health technology appraisals, value based pricing, service commissioning and access to medicines campaigns. Whether it is organising a stakeholder workshop or mapping the external environment, helping our clients make sense of the new health order is what HJCL does best.
