Dialogue by Design is the only full-service consultation bureau in the UK. We offer complete consultation and stakeholder engagement solutions including:

  • Our specially developed web-based consultation tools used by over 40 public and private organisations, across the UK and internationally
  • Design and running of face-to-face workshops. Our team has over 20 years of experience in running stakeholder dialogues and engagement processes
  • Paper-based consultations.

Some of our most innovative work is in the integration of web, face-to-face and paper based consultation and engagement processes. The ability to integrate different methods is crucial if you want to use web-based processes but do not want to exclude the hard-to-reach.

We are engagement professionals who use IT applications and systems to meet your consultation and engagement needs.

Smart Dialogue: cost-effective, web-based consultation system

We have developed Smart Dialogue in response to clients who wanted a way to consult with stakeholders that would allow them to handle large numbers of responses, to provide feedback to participants and decision makers using a transparent framework, all for a very cost-effective price.

Smart Dialogue allows a complete consultation to be carried out effectively using the web and the methodology is broad enough to apply to the majority of consultation types.
