The Communications Consultant (TCC) was founded by Sofie Verbruggen, a communications professional with over 15 years’ experience, gained predominantly in the energy and construction sectors. Sofie’s career in communications began in 2006 when she landed a short-term role with EPC giant KBR that would essentially sculpt her career for years to come. The role was as a Communications Officer for what is today the world’s biggest Gas to Liquids project, Pearl GTL, working alongside client Shell. Operating from KBR’s London office, Sofie helped set up a Communications Department for the Qatar based project. What started off as 3-month contract soon turned into a permanent role, and Sofie was on a steep learning curve coming up with ways to communicate to what would, at the peak of construction, become a 52,000-man strong workforce.
