Communications

We bring a strategic and comprehensive approach to communication planning and implementation.

Communications

Together, communication and engagement can help you create

  • Respect and a reputation that attracts talent
  • Positive customer experiences
  • More relevant and effective messages
  • Clearer information that takes less time to understand
  • Successful change

To set the stage for effective communication in times of change, we

  • Genuinely engage people – providing them with an opportunity to influence decisions
  • Facilitate the process in a way that honours the value participants bring
  • Listen carefully and communicate clearly – verbally and in writing

This approach can make the difference between building buy-in for change and creating – or increasing – resistance.

We support your goals with research, writing and editing

Our approach to communication materials is driven by your strategy and built for your audience. We write to convey your information so they get it. We apply the perspective of the audience, using the plain language approach from choice of content through design.

  • Strategic advice on stakeholder and employee communication and engagement
  • Strategic and integrated communication and engagement plans
  • Project management of communication initiatives and other service providers
  • Plain language writing and editing, encompassing content, organization, language and presentation
  • Development of communication materials, including speeches, reports, articles, fact sheets and web content
