Internal communications for offshore installation project
Project: installation of an offshore platform in the North West Shelf. For this project the company hired several hundreds of contractors. Creating a culture of commitment and positive attitude was an essential factor for the safe and successful execution of the installation project.
I drew up and executed a communications plan:
Organizing special induction meetings
Weekly newsletters (in English)
Team building activities
Create free publicity
“Marjolein laid out a communication strategy for the offshore phase of our Oil & Gas installation project. This comprised setting up an induction training program and a regular project newsletter.
Marjolein focused her splendid newsletter on building a team with the many new people onboard, all with different background and nationality.
Mixing topics on shared goals, portraits of individual crewmembers and funny observations on Australia and Holland made for a newsletter that people loved to read.
Her energetic and cheerful personality makes her a great person to work with. This allowed her to connect with a wide variety of people and to make an important contribution to the good relationship between Australian and Dutch crew.”

Marj coordinated the induction meetings for our 300 new crew members to kick off the North Rankin B installation in Perth (Australia).
She prepared the weekly communications newsletter during the offshore campaign and was instrumental in informing the workforce of the various work groups activities.
She is highly recommended with a natural creative flair to match her happy and vibrant personality”.
