Meet the Concilio team.
The Concilio team understand politics and how to communicate effectively with a wide-range of stakeholders. The content that we produce ensures messages are communicated clearly and creatively, using the widest range of channels. We all believe that new homes and infrastructure is needed to ensure that people have somewhere to live and work in a sustainable way, boosting the economy and creating communities. We know that to do this people need to feel genuinely engaged with, not spoken to. In short – we bring people together to create better places.

Managing Director, RLW Estates
Concilio’s involvement was instrumental in building confidence with Westminster Council, third party stakeholders and the local residents for our Cavendish Square project. Strategically precise from the outset and fully embedded within the project team they successfully ran our public consultation and advised on the engagement of all relevant parties resulting in obtaining the support of ward councilliors and subsequently aiding the unanimous consent of the scheme at planning committee.
Concilio’s creativity and diligence has ensured that we have been able to demonstrate to Enfield Council that regardless of Covid restrictions we have been able to undertake thorough and meaningful consultation. Dialogue has been maintained with community groups and councillors and all of our material has been translated into Somali and Turkish – ensuring full and transparent consultation has taken place
