Strategic Communications

Technical professionals and organisations have the knowledge and ideas about how things can be done better, but are not getting the support and uptake for their solutions that enable them to make a difference and positively impact peoples’ lives.

How do we ensure technical professionals can connect with diverse audiences, demonstrate the impact of new approaches and make a difference?

Our vision is to fundamentally improve the way we live by bridging the gap between technical solutions and society.

By helping you communicate ideas effectively, we enable you to:

  • Connect with your audience
  • Create buy-in from diverse stakeholders
  • Demonstrate the impact of your program, policy, research or ideas.

Foundry helps organisations become effective and influential in industry and society.

We asked Foundry to assist with strategic engagement for an important pilot project that we undertook for South East Water. The project involved developing an online GIS tool to facilitate communication and collaboration to promote IWM. Foundry brought huge energy and clarity to the project and provided invaluable input by helping the client understand and articulate what they wanted to achieve and their key objectives. They also helped us identify key stakeholders, get buy-in and understand potential risks. Without their input, the project would have taken a lot longer and not run as smoothly.

What our clients say...

Lindsey successfully project managed and made invaluable intellectual contribution to a project that has the potential to save Victorian taxpayers multiple millions of dollars. Lindsey’s knowledge of stormwater policy and critical assessment of the situation, combined with her apt communication skills, helped lead to a desirable and swift outcome for Melbourne Water. I would not hesitate to engage Lindsey again for solutions to urban stormwater policy problems.

- Aquatic Scientist

I would definitely recommend Lindsey and her team. Her ability to take complex issues and frame them in a way that is understandable by the community was invaluable. Helping us to be really clear on the purpose, audience and key messages for our document was what made it a success.

- Project Director

We had a need for an engaging collaborative submission to a planning agency. Lindsey knows what she is doing and has the passion to see change and is intent on getting the job done to a point she will be proud of the outcome.
