What we do

noun_Milestones_962524_0087ed.png

We believe the best decisions are made together by the people who will be affected.

But making decisions as a team, organisation or community can be daunting.

So we help groups to chart a simple path through complex decision making situations.

We work with groups on:

Workshop Facilitation

Community and Stakeholder Engagement

Graphic Recording and Scribing

 

How we go about it

Our work is guided by these principles

 

Pragmatic

Your context is complex and there’s likely a lot at play already. You need simplicity in design not more theory and complexity. We strive for the most simple and pragmatic approaches to complex discussions and decision making. Because when there’s less process in the way, the good stuff comes out.

Independent

This is a tough one. We understand that we’re often asked to work with groups for our independence and neutrality whilst also expected to draw upon our experience of the sectors we work within. We’re astutely aware of this balance and will always work with you to find the sweet spot.

Participative

Your group are the absolute brains trust and should be treated as so. We’re not about pontification, endless PowerPoints or hierarchies. Our approach is about everyone participating as much and as effectively as they can in the discussions and decisions at hand.

Tailored

Your group is unique and so is your situation. This deserves a considered and tailored approach, not something out of the box or off the shelf. Sure, we bring our experience into the mix but we approach every initiative as unique and tailor from our design from there.
