Our working experience within the industry enhances the practical quality and application of the information.

Building Pubic Support through Outreach and Communication

  

Being attuned to public sentiment, political hurdles, and waste industry influence is crucial to successful development and implementation of a project. The ability to communicate on a variety of levels is an important skill in high profile projects that deal with sensitive and emotionally charged issues like waste management. Equally important is the ability to listen, assess the root causes and determine the motivating forces behind a situation.  


  

Nestor Resources is experienced in maneuvering prevailing differences in perceptions, political persuasions, and protection of local autonomy that affect public services and policy decisions. To affect change in these areas requires hands-on experience in tailoring solutions to fit local values, while maintaining the overall goals and objectives of the organization at large. 


 Consulting firms are expected to have a number of technical and analytical proficiencies. Nestor Resources couples those given skills with the value added capacity to deliver convincing arguments and justifications to support the decisions of local officials and to bolster public acceptance of policies. Additionally, Nestor Resources can help officials identify opportunities to satisfy regulatory demands without sacrificing public support.
