Our Approach

How do you utilize communications and public engagement to create a inclusive and empowering project development process?

  • Create understanding. Develop a high-level plan that defines objectives, strategies, and timelines for internal and external communications and stakeholder engagement.
  • Generate awareness. Define the process and inform community stakeholders about the plan and exactly how they can be involved. Assist the client with developing meaningful connections and trust among stakeholders and community members.
  • Involve stakeholders. Encourage participation to get the most amount of feedback possible from targeted audiences. Produce public events that inform stakeholders and community members of progress and next steps.
  • Develop ownership. Help bring stakeholders together to define traditions and new norms and celebrate significant milestones, i.e kick-offs, groundbreakings, ribbon cuttings, and openings.
  • Achieve advocacy. Assemble key communications and project materials – articles, reports, photos, graphics, videos, publications, etc. – for client and stakeholder/ community future use.
