Stakeholder Communications

Proactive stakeholder communication is essential to the success of your project. POWER’s communication experts can analyze the challenges facing your project and craft creative communications solutions to keep your project moving ahead on schedule.

Our team of facilitators, media specialists and public outreach managers pairs expertise with sophisticated technology to efficiently coordinate the many details that lead to successful stakeholder engagement.

Public Involvement

The public voice is powerful and can have a significant impact on your project. Engaging the public as part of the development process is typically required. We can help guide your efforts from the earliest communications to lead to a more successful project.

POWER’s public involvement experts have years of experience and a proven track record in public involvement and outreach in the energy, environmental and transportation industries. We know how to engage the public, capture the essence of their concerns, and maintain an accurate and complete public record for regulatory compliance.

We’ll identify stakeholders and work with them to gather input and help you apply it to project decisions. Our approach is proactive and will help you avoid common project pitfalls. If a crisis does arise, you’ll benefit from our extensive training in mediation, conflict resolution and crisis communications. We mobilize quickly to minimize impacts to scope and schedule.
