PR & COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT, BRUNEL UNIVERSITY
“Gareth Strangemore-Jones was retained as PR and Communications Consultant at the University from June 2002-March 2003.
The consultancy was to plan and implement a communications strategy for the University’s campus development plan, a projected £160 million new build and refurbishment programme of the University’s main site at Uxbridge, Middlesex.
Given the University’s sensitive location on green belt land in a residential area, measures to minimise local residents’ objections and to communicate the benefits of the proposed scheme were an important part of the development strategy.
Gareth worked on this project on behalf of the University. Outcomes included a brochure to present the proposed master plan of the campus, residents’ meetings with talks and displays, an online enquiries desk and a recording mechanism that allowed the University to give a report to the planning authority on residents’ responses.
The consultation led to beneficial changes in the proposals and helped to establish a better dialogue with local residents, one that continues today.
Planning permission was granted in September 2003 and the construction phase of the project is on the way to completion. Overall, therefore, the consultancy helped the University enormously to achieve what was and remains a major aim of its corporate plan.
During the time of the consultancy, Gareth also gave general assistance in the area of PR as cover for the Head of PR during her illness.
In his time at the University, Gareth showed that he had the expertise to plan and implement a campaign. He established a timetable for the campaign to which we were largely able to adhere. He interacted well with people inside and out with the University and presented an excellent report for use with the local authority. He clearly has the knowledge, skills and expertise in his chosen field to establish himself as a preferred consultant.”
