What our clients say:

“We have been using Dods EU for a few years now and have just added UK to our Package as it has become a vital tool to help us stay on top of the political agenda on a daily basis. Compared to other similar services we used before, Dods provides a quality service with a tailor made approach, not to mention the hands-on client service that really sets Dods apart. The service is easy to use and the alerts/daily recaps are always spot on and timely.”
Mathieu Brucker
Herbalife

EU Government Affairs Manager
“After using Dods Monitoring for nearly two years now, I can safely say that the whole team at GIE could not do without the invaluable support the service provides. Whether working in public affairs or communications, the Briefings and tailor-made research (e.g. stakeholder mapping, an updated Energy Attaches list, etc.) have become real time savers. We warmly recommend the service and have actually just renewed for another two years!”
