Market Research and Stakeholder Engagement

arrow-right

Our support includes undertaking market research, horizon scanning and benchmarking our clients with their competitors and partners. We also design and implement stakeholder engagement activities so that an organisation has properly consulted with funders, volunteers, staff, collaborators, trustees & service users, where possible and appropriate. There are a variety of ways this can be done from questionnaires to focus groups, social media engagement & facilitated sessions. We help you design the process, develop questions, support with administration and help crunch the results to inform your new strategy.

Board Away Days

We run and facilitate away days for boards and senior leadership teams. These will be co-designed with clients so that they are fit for purpose and reflect the ambitions and culture of each organisation. An away day will typically involve exploring feedback from stakeholders, making space to be creative and support innovative thinking, and then working with colleagues to develop ideas and strategic options. We will use a range of techniques and tools to bring these days to life and provide a high energy and focused environment, leading to plans which are owned across the whole leadership team.

Strategy Implementation
