The need

Earth observation science and technology are seeing increasing investment and impact. CSIRO’s Centre for Earth Observation has a key leadership role within the organisation, Australia and internationally. It’s leading a number of projects to create sovereign infrastructure and support expertise. As a specialist Centre with global goals, they needed additional marketing and communication support from a professional that understood the context and research.


Our solution

Claire was contracted to deliver a range of services from 2018 to 2021. Claire worked with the Director of CCEO and many scientists and communication specialists. 

Deliverables and projects included:

  • Developing a communication and engagement strategy for the Centre.
  • Writing and editing marketing materials including brochures, case studies, fact sheets and media releases related to CCEO as well as NovaSAR, CubeSats, calibration and validation.
  • Writing and uploading website content (WordPress) following readability and WCAG 
  • Event and workshop design including survey development and Slido, researching and inviting speakers, leading internal meetings, creating and revising sections of agendas.
  • Creating a brief business plan for the Earth Analytics and Science Innovation data analytics platform. This included updating the extensive plan from a few years prior and including sections based on market intelligence and liaising with internal subject matter experts.
  • Creating and editing fact sheets, web content and newsletter content for EASI.

I highly recommend Claire Harris. We have worked on various projects together over the last 10+ years, many have required advice on our communication strategy. Claire’s work is high quality, creative and delivered against our strategic goals.
