WHO WE ARE
Ro Bo Communications enables organizations to tap into the power of communication in order to engage their audiences, instill confidence and demonstrate leadership. We are a multi-disciplinary consultancy with more than 20 years of experience in internal, leadership and strategic communication, corporate social responsibility and not-for-profit communication, media relations and event management.
Managing Director Rosanne L. Bonanno holds an honors degree in Journalism from Carleton University in Canada. She began her career in publishing before moving to the corporate sector as a communication consultant. She has worked in several continents and a variety of organizations, from multinationals to small not-for-profits. She is a strong believer in the importance of transparency, collaboration and diversity. When she’s not helping organizations succeed, she can be found exploring the world, above and below water, and giving back in whatever way she can.
What we do
"Clear communication goals are key to a strong communication strategy."
STRATEGY AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Defining and refining those goals is an ongoing process that should reflect your ambitions and operating reality. We support you in defining your communications goals, whether it’s a restructuring of your approach or a simple refinement, and in enhancing your existing communication infrastructure, including the platforms and processes that you use to communicate.
"Leaders play a vital role in communicating a company’s vision and direction."
A strong and persuasive message is essential, as is the ability to engage others in that message – whether it’s employees, customers, donors or the press. We help you to plan what to say and when and how to deliver it. We bring it all together with thoughtful plans that support your objectives.
"Communicating during complex organizational change is challenging but critical."
Uncertainty can cause feelings of anxiety and fear, which, in turn, can dampen enthusiasm and productivity. Sharing information often and transparently can help employees feel valued and heard, and prepared to respond to the new environment. We help you to identify and execute the best solution for your particular challenge.
"Interim solutions can be the best way to guide a team in transition."
A new way of looking at things can improve a team’s performance and re-establish faith in the importance of communicating. When we come on board, we hit the ground running and we help keep things moving. We also help you to identify and put into place a more permanent solution.
"A seamlessly executed event or project equals a positive participant experience."
EVENT AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT
We collaborate with you to realize a top-notch event, from managing the detailed logistics to the delivery of all communication materials, or we ease your workload by taking over the management of a critical project, such as leadership meetings, annual conferences, marketing road shows and advocacy events.
"Communicating effectively is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor."
WRITING AND MULTIMEDIA
Reaching audiences for a different purpose demands different approaches. We help you to identify the medium that best fits your objective, whether it’s a presentation, social media post or video, an Annual Report or newsletter. We work with you to develop the concept and, where needed, compile the right team to deliver the finished product.
Featuring multimedia that showcase our work
The truck driver’s daily health risks
We created a travelling multimedia exhibition for North Star Alliance that included a powerful documentary film. At the Crossroads features the story of Edward, a 45-year-old long-haul truck driver from Malawi who combats loneliness and health risk every day on Africa’s deadliest roads.
