Although specialising in the mining and oil and gas sectors, we have experience working with companies in a variety of sectors including forestry, agriculture, infrastructure, power generation, commodities training and other utilities.

The worlds of sustainability, communications, reputation and stakeholder engagement all overlap but often require specialists from multiple agencies. At Meon Associates, we understand all these disciplines but also how and when to bring together further expertise for different tasks and projects.

We are familiar with the requirements of key international lenders and investors.

Our philosophy is to understand and advise. 

We are prepared to be the odd ones out and to play devil's advocate. 

There are many consultants and advisers who will simply agree with you, but it's a lot of money to pay for an echo. 

We are probably add most value when telling you uncomfortable truths so that you can make the best decisions for your business future.
