Who we are

We are a growing team of passionate, creative and socially innovative professionals enabling people and organisations doing something good to be more effective and have greater impact.

We are specialists in community engagement, participatory event design, futures and foresight, social media and strategic communications, process facilitation and collaboration. We have cross-disciplinary skills and cross-sector experience working with diverse organisations, institutions and communities.

Our mission is to build the capability of organisations and individuals in government, business, not-for-profit, social enterprise, community and academia to solve society’s great challenges and work better together to build better futures for all.

What we do

We work with leading organisations, communities and individuals doing something good, and grow their capacity for doing something better together. We’ll help you grow your capability for human-centred design, innovation, strategic communications, community engagement and genuine collaboration.

We design and facilitate engaging events that bring together communities to address local issues, foster cross-sector collaboration and create shared value.

We offer learning and development programs that tap in to the potential of emerging technologies, leverage collaborative ways of working, and will maximise your strategic opportunities in a rapidly changing and networked world.

We can design communications and community engagement strategies with you that will inspire participation, grow your reach and scale your ability to achieve positive social and environmental outcomes.
