Simon Eldridge, (former) Director Corporate Affairs & Government Relations, QERWilkinson Group

Peter Wilkinson (Wilkinson Group) brings not only enormous experience to assessing media and broader external communications challenges facing resource companies, he brings a keen ability to ‘cut to the chase’ and identify what it is required to enhance a company’s or project’s reputation and what messages will resonate with different key project stakeholders.

I engaged Peter to help develop and guide a comprehensive media and communications strategy for QER’s $200 million oil shale processing plant in Gladstone, successfully turning around local community opposition and the scepticism of the Queensland State Government and Gladstone Regional Council.

Peter’s insights into the strategic direction required, and the tactical messages and delivery platforms, were instrumental in getting the project approved.
