Dods Information

Tailored political intelligence

About 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.

Our expert team of multi-lingual consultants, researchers and journalists from across Europe deliver the key knowledge, insight and skills you need to understand how government works, to engage effectively and to get your voice heard where it matters. Our unrivalled personal and innovative service provides tailored learning, training and intelligence when and where it’s required. From bespoke training courses to political and public sector monitoring, polling, research and contacts, we evolve with you and the sector to meet your changing needs.

After all, we’ve been evolving for nearly 200 years, so why stop now.
