One of the most important commitments to our clients is helping them grow and safeguard their bottom line. Today, external stakeholders have a more powerful role that can create financial havoc. These may be NGOs, elected officials at all levels of government, regulators, community and civic leaders, as well as the media both traditional and digital. They can either help or hurt a project or a facility/asset. Successful stakeholder engagement is critical to ensuring that a project is successful or asset continues to be productive. It is important to listen to and strategically communicate with stakeholders. In the process, we will identify potential issues and develop effective strategies to address them. The bottom line is that if stakeholders are not listened to, concerns are not addressed and they are not communicated with, the project will become more costly, come to a screeching halt or the asset will become non-productive.
