We specialise in community problem solving, engagement, facilitation, conflict management, strategy, governance and evaluation.
Small- and large-scale engagement specialists
RMCG has a team of engagement experts who help clients engage communities and stakeholders. We design and deliver online and face-to-face engagement for projects ranging from large multi-year programs to small one-off sessions.
Strategy for a complex world
Communities and business are complex. RMCG supports our clients to understand and manage complexity. We use engagement insights and our technical understanding to support clear strategy. Our approach incorporates principles of co-design, place-based planning and resilience planning.
We don’t have an off-the-shelf engagement package because each community and stakeholder group has their own needs and concerns, and no two projects are the same. We work with you to design and deliver engagement and strategy that works.
Grounded in content
Our team is grounded both in the content we address and the methods we use. We are not content-free practitioners. Our engagement and strategy techniques are complemented by an in-depth understanding of communities, and training and experience in science, engineering, economics, environment and policy.
Embedded in communities
RMCG staff live in and are strongly connected to communities across our offices in Melbourne, regional Victoria, Tasmania, regional New South Wales and Canberra. We understand what matters to communities and businesses to help our clients plan and engage effectively.
