Stakeholder Communications

Aligning businesses and communities to enable progress.

Successful stakeholder engagement is underpinned by a strong, tailored and highly considered communications strategy and implementation that aligns to the overarching engagement plan.

Communities are more empowered than ever with access to information via the internet and social media. As a result, governments and organisations face increasing scrutiny and criticism if decisions are made in isolation of the communities they might impact.

Strategic stakeholder communications are essential to support the engagement program and to uphold principles of collaboration, education, trust and empathy. This delivers added value to planning and project outcomes while proactively mitigating against community issues becoming a risk to reputation and financial targets.

Our services include:

  • Strategy development and project management
  • Project brand development
  • Project website development and management
  • Copywriting and proofing
  • Digital communications platforms
  • Graphics for displays and collateral for open days, community meetings, public information sessions, focus groups etc
  • Content development (video production, animation, infographics)
  • Digital and social media strategy, advertising and implementation
  • Issues management and proactive media management
  • Communication updates (website, EDMs, social media etc)

What our clients have to say

communikate were initially engaged to assist in rebranding and marketing. I was most impressed with the way they listened, interpreted our ideas and turned them into something the whole community took pride in…. Their strategy helped us to achieve strong enrolment numbers… I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a professional, innovative, talented and highly relational marketing (and more) agency.

Bec, Henry and the team understood our brand from the get go and it showed from concept to delivery. During an intensely busy time for our team, they worked seamlessly with us to develop and manage an integrated campaign... The results were outstanding and put the hotel in an excellent position to launch into a competitive market, with strong occupancy experienced. We really value our partnership.

communikate et al were an integral part of the King William Road upgrade team from the initial community consultation right through to completion. The brand they created fit the project perfectly.
