Our Experience

All Proximity advisors embody our values of genuine, bold and helpful.

These are the key ingredients for successful stakeholder engagement and negotiation, regardless of the size or value of your project, business case, or engagement need.

Our Advisors have designed and delivered tailored engagement strategies and facilitation methods to build understanding, create ownership and inform decision-making.

Our Advisors communicate openly, honestly and effectively.

Our transparent approach ensures we bring your people together, including staff, clients, and the broader public.

Skills and expertise

Our Advisors have worked at all levels of government, from the Secretary through to on-the-ground delivery.

This broad experience allows us to offer a range of talents, insights and approaches to engage and inform stakeholders.

  • We have facilitated sensitive cross-jurisdictional political meetings, community roundtable sessions, and in-house consultations, analysing and reporting on outcomes to support decision-making.
  • We combine our ability to synthesise complex technical information into easy-to-understand solutions, with our specialist facilitation and relationship skills, to deliver against every aspect of the engagement lifecycle.
