In delivering our commercial client’s brief, the network of stakeholders must often be treated as quasi-clients to the extent necessary to build a strong and dependable trusted relationship between the parties. We are adept at managing with integrity the sensitivities and potential conflicts of interest that permeate such delicate circumstances.
Resources applied to building and maintaining the Social Licence to Operate (SLO) must be seen as investments rather than costs. This allows the freedom for local communities and the broader network of stakeholders to determine their own priorities and sustainable solutions. This in turns establishes trusted and valued relationships and increases the robustness of the SLO.
