Main Street counsels clients on how best to use their resources
to manage risk. An organization that neglects internal or
external communications runs a heightened risk of incurring
costs related to rumour, negative media reports, irrational
opposition, procedural challenges and delays. A well-managed
communications and consultation program profiles and supports
senior decision-makers, develops the skills of in-house staff
and builds positive links between the client and the community.
