Clients increasingly ask us to develop projects that use a combination
of face-to-face, paper-based and electronic methods to reach as
many people as possible.
The integrated approach is particularly effective when a longer-term
consultation process is required.
For example, we are running integrated consultations for, among
others, Surrey and Kent County Councils, Defra, and the Committee
on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM).
We have used our experience in this area to develop Smart Panel,
an innovative panel solution combining representativeness, integrated
methods and a deliberative approach to engagement rather than
just tick-box surveys.
This is a major development in the area of the citizens' panel.

of different types of panel see our June
newsletter article on panels.
