We are experienced communicators and understand stakeholder expectations, engaging them in a manner that generates trust, knowledge and collaboration. A proactive approach to stakeholder engagement can often make a significant difference to gaining acceptance or support for a project.
To ensure this is successful we develop stakeholder engagement plans; design and facilitate engagement events; and evaluate engagement activities, to identify strengths and weaknesses whilst also providing insights and analysis that strengthens the design and delivery of a project.
We work extensively with a range of private and public sector clients to design and deliver their engagement requirements. We work to recognised good practice, undertaking stakeholder mapping, developing engagement strategies, and coordinating engagement activities. Our services include:
- Stakeholder engagement plans
- Stakeholder mapping
- Design and delivery of engagement events and activities

Getting stakeholder engagement right can often be crucial to the success of a project. Our staff include communication specialists who can advise you on how best to engage with a wide range of stakeholders, from regulatory bodies to hard-to-reach groups.
How we can help you
Drawing upon our considerable experience, we can assist you to identify the best methods for involving and consulting with stakeholders, whether it is to satisfy a specific issue with a key regulator or to gain the views of the public on a difficult or contentious issue. We use a wide range of methods from exhibitions and meetings, through to e-surveys embracing the power of social-media.
We also design effective and eye-catching engagement materials, drawing upon the specialist graphic design-skills of our in-house marketing team and landscape architects. This includes designing exhibition boards, posters, flyers and multi-media content for websites.
