The majority of our work is in actually doing consultations
for clients, giving us a uniquely practical approach to the field.
We can take on a complete project or undertake only the parts
that you do not have the resources to do yourself. We will work
with you to design the process, starting with an understanding
of your objectives, target audiences and any limiting factors,
and how you will want to use the results.
Typically, the processes we design enable you to:
- Seek responses to consultation documents
- Manage large-scale public consultations
- Initiate public debates
- Run ideas generation sessions
- Co-draft documents
- Engage communities.
We can execute the whole or any part of the process according
to your resources, blending paper-based and online submissions
with facilitated meetings, as appropriate.
We use the most appropriate method for the particular consultation
or participation process.
|Online methods: Purpose-designed
tools used by over 40 organisations internationally.
|Workshop or meeting-based:
We are experienced facilitators.
|Paper-based: We can
manage the collection of paper submissions, creating an electronic
database for rapid reporting and easily prepared summaries.
In many situations combining more than one method is the best
way to reach diverse groups.
