Stakeholder engagement experts

We can assist with all your stakeholder engagement needs, from policy development through to public affairs. This includes early engagement to help shape your ideas and develop better policy. Or engagement to deliver communications strategy and campaigns, where stakeholders carry your content and amplify your messages to influence public policy and protect and enhance your company's reputation.

We're the leading stakeholder engagement experts on major transport infrastructure projects. Our Founder, Jo Field, built and led Transport for London's award-winning stakeholder engagement team, securing stakeholder support for London's transport infrastructure and the funding to deliver it.

These include HS2, Heathrow expansion, Crossrail 1, Crossrail 2, the Tube upgrade and the 2012 Olympic Games, as well as leading transformational campaigns for cycling and walking investment.

We can help you develop stakeholder support and advocacy, and make the case for your transport project or programme. We have led campaigns to help our customers  raise their profile, amplify their message and enter and establish themselves in the UK market.

Gender diversity experts 

Our Founder and Managing Director, Jo Field is an award-winning expert in gender diversity. Jo was named FTA everywoman in Transport and Logistics Industry Champion 2016 for her work attracting and retaining women in transport. Women are under-represented in this sector and, according to EU data, make up just one-fifth of the workforce.

We’re experienced in developing toolkits and content to help transport sector customers build more diverse and inclusive teams. We worked with our founding client, Heathrow to develop a suite of diversity and inclusion communications materials to give senior-leaders the know-how to establish diverse teams. We also worked with Deloitte and the Mayor of London to develop content for the Our Time initiative, which supports the development of women into leadership roles. The programme included the creation of a free online toolkit that public, private and third sector organisations can download to support them to tackle gender inequality at senior levels. 

We have advised our transport and infrastructure customers on setting up women’s networks and how best to target their recruitment campaigns. We have also carried out research to help our customers better understand gender issues in their organisations. An example is the CIPR's construction and property special interest group, research on women working in construction PR.

We offer a range of workshops and training to support women leaders and aspiring leaders, including our personal branding and profile-raising course.

We’ve produced this headline guide to how we’re helping to accelerate diversity in the transport industry.
