Our end-to-end engagement services include designing, facilitating and delivering a range of research and insight services:


Co-design workshops

Our expertly delivered co-design workshops put all stakeholder participants at the heart of the process – a process that we ensure is thorough and robust.

Infographic design

Public & community panel recruitment

In the past decade we have recruited over a quarter of a million members, stakeholders and citizens for organisations to engage with, inform, consult and hear. Whether you need to find new members for your foundation trust or
newly merged organisation, citizens for your panel or forum, participants for a focus group, community members to involve during your public consultation, or hard to reach groups to demonstrate you’re listening fully, we can find and recruit these people for you.

Event management

Our disciplined approach to event management leaves our clients free to focus on engaging with their audience. We have experience of successfully managing public consultation events, market research exercises and public health programmes.

Interviews and focus groups

We have carried out hundreds of in-depth interviews with people from all backgrounds – residents, patients, employees, clinicians, experts and professional body members. We have experience of working with groups referred to as ‘seldom heard’ or ‘hard to reach’. All of our researchers are trained to elicit responses and uncover new insights from respondents. Our in-depth interviews reveal the emotion behind individual responses, which is crucial to understand what’s really important to respondents. Interviews are adaptable to client needs and will deliver valuable intelligence from your stakeholders.

Approachable, professional and robust throughout, taking on a difficult role with energy and creativity. Highly recommended.
