When you “do a consultation”…

…ask lots of people, in different places, in different ways that engages with how they like to think and do things.

And stick around afterwards!

So they can see their comments being acted on, they get involved in the ongoing process, you get to hear more about them and what they want and need, you build relationships that help any future work, they become part of the project and feel it’s theirs so they support it and get more benefit from it.

Don’t “do a consultation”, have a relationship!
