community engagement
enter a short description...

community engagement

Many of our clients come to us at the point where they are considering making a substantial financial investment in the economy of Kent or the wider south of England. 

For public and private sector organisations, not overly familiar with the geographical area and local business climate, building traction can be a daunting task. Especially without any established connections among local influencers, e.g. politicians, community and business leaders and representatives of the media.

An enviable track record

It is at times like this when Maxim can provide expert insight and practical advice, identifying tangible community-based campaigns in the region, for both UK and international businesses.

As a company with decades of experience in the communications industry, we have built an enviable track record in creating and implementing a broad range of programmes, where local community engagement has been integral.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a taste of what we do: 

  • supporting significant infrastructure projects
  • assisting organisations with major business expansion programmes
  • staging public events
  • organising school educational activities
  • sponsorship and hosting events
  • company and project-based profile-raising initiatives
  • health promotion and awareness campaigns
  • arts and environmental programmes

We’ll help you to devise a comprehensive communications strategy that will keep your target audience informed and maximise all possible publicity opportunities along the way. 

Our instinct for what works and what doesn’t work has proved to be invaluable for numerous businesses and organisations over the years.

social media

Connect with the community

As well as engaging with your audience, social media is also a great way of gathering opinions and listening to specific communities.

Perhaps you want to find out if residents are in favour of a planning scheme, what they have concerns over or what they are in favour of. Monitoring social media is an excellent place to begin and gives you the opportunity to respond.

You can also form your own community and engage with people in real time.

Get in touch for advice on your social media strategy.
