Westminster Briefing

Westminster Briefing is a brand of Dods Group Plc, Europe's leading political information, policy communication and public affairs specialist. Their briefings, summits and training events are part of a wide variety of services they provide. For over ten years a diverse range of professionals has attended their events to receive up-to-date information about the latest policies and developments affecting their field.

A brief history of Dods

When The Times’ parliamentary journalist Charles Roger Phipps Dod left the iconic British newspaper to launch Dods Parliamentary Companion in 1832, little did he know that almost two centuries later his definitive guide to UK political figures would still be published annually. He certainly would never have imagined that it would form the inspiration for the world’s most comprehensive, reliable and accurate source of political and public sector intelligence and education. Nor that the company would still bear his name, share his values of impartiality and integrity, and be the essential tool for anyone looking to thoroughly understand and engage with government and public affairs in the UK, the European Union, and beyond.
