Take advantage of truths and transparency

Communication Strategy

Confidently avoid the pitfalls and identify the opportunities.

Meaningful communication is created from the identification and expression of genuine truths about the brand, product, service or organisation.

From many years of experience Vivian Partnership knows the right questions to ask. To deliver the distinguishing answers that sit at the heart of any compelling communications strategy. This is particularly true in the delicate and sensitive area of sustainability, where accusations of Greenwash have led many to shy away, where advantage can be gained.

We help to create an individual voice which can be critical to a meaningful communication strategy. The safety of a stilted corporate voice does nothing to convey the personality of the organisation and alienates many listeners. We put together a complete package including visual imagery, design and language which will engage and inform. Gone are the days when companies can bark instructions and expect others to listen and respond.

Allow us to identify and guide you through the maze avoiding Greenwash and developing communications programmes that deliver results and create a strong and trusted personality.

A recent example has been the creation of a new website for UK Coal Surface Mining. This was built around the client’s requirements to present  a more contemporary face for the company and allow much more relevant and timely information to be loaded by a wide cross section of staff. There is more information on a blog describing the process and outcomes.



It is fantastic to leave a seminar feeling inspired and full of practical ideas. Thursday’s oomph seminar did exactly that, Ben and Dan are naturals at putting an audience at ease which meant real participation from the group. As environmental professionals often form a one person team, it is fantastic to share a room with like minded individuals from local businesses who have faced and tackled similar challenges and can offer insight and advice. Eagerly anticipating the next installment of Oomph!

Thank you both for inviting us to today’s Oomph seminar. From our point of view, we found the stimulus material and subsequent debate insightful from a sustainability perspective, but also in a wider context applicable to the successful deployment of general business initiatives.

Really enjoyed this morning. I have attended very few seminars over the past two years simple because they are all too similar, often the the same speakers and follow the same theme. Today was most importantly enjoyable, interesting and got the brain cells working. I like small groups with variety of people and backgrounds.
