Fixed-price Engagement Design

Don’t rush into your engagement without a clear strategy

With a set-price Engagement Design, you’ll gain a clear understanding of your challenges and how genuine engagement can help. Rushed engagement design is one of the biggest mistakes we see organisations making. With a Fixed-price Engagement Design, you’ll create realistic expectations that set you up for success.

We’ve created two fixed price offerings, so you can easily factor an Engagement Design into your budget.



Training and Capability-Building

Upskill and better support your team

Enable your team to engage, codesign and partner with other organisations and people in your community.

We’ve run training sessions up and down the country to help organisations shift from “command and consult” to “engage and work together”.

You can choose from one of our existing workshops or we can tailor a new training session to meet your needs.
