The construction industry needs a social license to get things built. This reduces the risk of delays and associated costs, enhances organisational reputations and meets community expectations. With this understanding, Jane delivers engagement programs that enable stakeholders to have a voice while balancing the needs of project proponents.
Jane is also skilled at facilitation and negotiation. Her empathetic nature builds trust enabling her to have hard conversations to find common ground. Jane is also responsive to client needs, able to quickly identify risk from different perspectives. She can then offer approaches that are fit-for-purpose and agile to respond to changing circumstances.
A communication professional, Jane is a great writer and presenter. She works hard at clear messaging for different audiences and different levels of understanding.
Extensive experience in the utilities industry has seen Jane manage engagement on major water treatment plant upgrades, recycled water schemes, solar farm installations and water security planning. This experience means that Jane can translate the technical into the simple.
