Communications and engagement

Understanding community values is one of the most crucial yet complex aspects of doing business today. Whether it’s a multi-billion infrastructure project or a local policy initiative, engaging with the community about your project vision and goals can help build stakeholder buy-in, reduce risk and build social benefit.

Engaging people through inspired communications

At RPS, we’re passionate about helping clients forge meaningful connections with their stakeholders both internal and external, public and private. While no two people are alike, we believe that positive two-way exchange can unlock valuable opportunities to see problems more clearly and design better solutions.  

We provide communications strategy and advice to project proponents across a multitude of sectors. We work with you to identify audiences, articulate objectives and foster support for initiatives using a tailored range of mediums and forums.  

With deep expertise in deliberative engagement processes and social research we gather and evaluate robust public insights that guide good decision-making.
