Kylie and the STEM Matters team were amazing to work with in developing the Westpac STEM Commitment. They provided a suite of expert skills such a strategy, content development, communications and media relations; that were instrumental in getting the project across the line.
I looked to STEM Matters for help when our advisory board opined that our Centres’ greatest challenge was that we were ‘invisible’. STEM Matters helped to craft strategy, stories and a compelling narrative about the amazing and inspiring work that we do and the research who do it. Our advisory board declared that our “invisibility” problem was solved in only 4 months. The STEM Matters team was easy to work with: professional, flexible and results-oriented.
STEM Matters assisted in preparing the final report of the Expert Reference Group's Review into Australia's Space Industry Capability in 2018. They supported our team to deliver an on-time report that was well received publicly and by the Government.
Kylie’s approach is very partnership based. She understood our philanthropy objectives and built a long-term content strategy, resourcing and implementation plan that was instrumental in helping us reach our philanthropy goals. She also ensured that there was knowledge transfer throughout the project so that our team could take the project on long term.
