Guyanese public relations firm, Sagacity Media, and Canadian consultancy, the Caron Hawco Group, have joined forces, through a memorandum of understanding, to offer consulting services targeting Guyana’s oil and gas industry. Guyana Strategic Services will specialize in strategy communications, business development, and opening doors to Guyana’s oil and gas industry.

The announcement was made on Thursday evening at the residence of the High Commissioner of Canada to Guyana, Mrs. Lilian Chatterjee.

According to Guyana business owner, Chris Chapwanya, interest is high for this collaboration as Guyana’s oil & gas industry experiences significant growth based on numerous oil and gas discoveries and production set to come on stream as early as 2020.

Guyana Strategic Services will help companies develop strategies to grow and create value doing business in Guyana,” explained Chapwanya. “We offer deep industry experience, based on Caron’s twenty years working with international petroleum companies and the oil and gas business sector of Newfoundland and Labrador and my Guyana marketplace insights, providing public relations, marketing, advertising, and social media for over ten years.

“Companies wishing to compete in oil and gas require a combination of global expertise and local perspective to advance their business. We offer both,” said Canadian business owner, Caron Hawco. “A key advantage for us will be our use of digital technology to bring together world-class expertise to service clients, regardless of their location.”

According to the Canadian High Commissioner, “This alliance is an excellent example of Canadians and Guyanese working together to help build this emerging oil and gas industry and helping to solidify Guyana as an investment destination.”
