Battens takes a strategic approach to communications planning. This involves critical analysis of clients’ business objectives, target audiences, key messages and issues at the outset of any campaign. This is followed by detailed planning and closely managed implementation, to ensure that nothing is left to chance.

Batten consultants work in close partnership with clients to deliver communications that achieve positive business outcomes. The effectiveness of our communications is underpinned by years of experience advising many of Australia's largest companies on an extensive range of complex transactions and critical issues across a wide variety of industry sectors. 

“Suzie developed comprehensive communications planning and materials, then oversaw the implementation, to announce the acquisition of our company by a major public company.

We hadn’t done anything like this before and it was invaluable to have someone with that expertise to guide us through the process.”

“What Suzie does unusually well is develop and communicate client information effectively to a wide range of stakeholders.

She is good at distilling complex information into simple messages then assessing how best to convey them to the audiences concerned.”
