Conduct some research on the individual you are meeting. This mind sound basic, but many do not bother.
Specialist communication and engagement consultancy Engage Communicate Facilitate’s #TrustedTip focuses on the importance of preparation.
Know who you’re talking to.
“Which party do they belong to?
What type of ward/constituency do they represent?
What previous statements have they made on planning applications?
Each of these elements will shape their approach to your scheme.
Knowing this will also allow you to tailor your message appropriately and bring the relevant materials in your meeting.”
