The Science of Communication

PR Associates breakdowns complex scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical (STEM) concepts to communicate them in ways that are easy to understand. Through our focus on training and strategic communication, we help STEM-minded professionals and their organizations build favourable reputations and achieve success.

It’s not magic, it's science

PR Associates uses a unique approach to communicating scientific information. We call it the Science of Communication™. This simple but effective method makes it easier for non-technical people to understand the STEM concepts behind complex ideas and projects. We give your team the skills to meaningfully connect with: investors, media, Indigenous communities, federal, provincial, territorial, municipal and international governments, and the public.

The results speak for themselves

We have helped companies gain approval for $20.5 billion worth of projects. We have helped introduce new technologies which attracted investments of $600 million. We have delivered communication training to 2,000 STEM professionals to become better communicators.

We work with some of the top technical, environmental, bio-technical, aerospace, civil, chemical, geotechnical engineers and earth scientists in the world to translate technical information and then communicate the information for non-science audiences.
