Government Relations

Navigating through the political landscape requires guidance to protect and promote your cause or project. Mara’s team of public affairs specialists have worked at all levels of government, on the inside as political and media advisors, to working as lobbyists and specialists within local government. Our experience will get you results.

Workshops and Facilitation

A workshop is a great way to bring people together to plan, solve problems, manage issues and forge collaborative partnerships. A Mara workshop will build understanding, cut through long standing challenges, enable innovation, create a cohesive team and enable action. Bringing diverse communities and stakeholders together is our specialty resulting in respectful, fun and productive workshops that have clear and well documented outcomes.
