I just wanted to say I really enjoyed the public engagement session Laridae Communications facilitated at the Art Gallery of Peterborough. I had expected rows of seating with a copy of a proposed strategic plan for each member and calls for questions, voting, etc. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with an engaging and fun session that included thought-provoking questions. We were able to meet and speak with people we might not have normally had an opportunity to speak with. Thank you for an excellent public engagement session.
Developing a strategic plan can be an overwhelming task. Thanks to Laridae the process was timely, engaging and strategically executed. Laridae was responsive to our needs and great to work with.
Thank you for ensuring that the needs of children and youth with special needs and their families remained the focus of all of our planning. Although an incredibly resource intensive process, especially given that you were supporting 3 service planning tables across a vast geography, your firm excelled in stakeholder engagement. Greatly appreciated the reach out to parents, front line providers and community partners across our region.
“As the Peterborough and the Kawarthas Economy grows, so too will the need for employers to access the right talent to sustain this growth. The newcomer talent pool is, and will continue to be a critical component to successful economic development. Laridae’s work on the Newcomer Employment Integration project provides a great resource for our community that will help us reach this goal.”
