Workshop Design and Facilitationdivider


Successful deliberative practice does not stop when you get people in the room…


We are expert facilitators. We manage and facilitate groups of any size.

We are exceptional at designing approaches which not only enable the individuals involved to move beyond their own personal concerns, but to effectively work together with others who have different views to find a way forward.

Our lead facilitator Emily Jenke has more than 25 years’ experience in facilitation design and delivery with a proven track record that speaks for itself. Our facilitation team focusses on building relationships between participants and with the convening organisation as well as achieving the outcomes required.

It’s about switching on their collective potential and getting the best out of people and groups. 

Having an independent facilitator like democracyCo is of central importance to deliberative processes. It helps to avoid perceptions that the process is biased towards a particular outcome. Independent, non-partisan and non-political facilitation also ensures that there is an expert in place who is focussed on the process, and not the content.

We are experts in facilitating participative and deliberative processes. We understand groups and group dynamics. We have expertise in design and delivery of participative & deliberative processes. We are intuitive and adaptive – and our focus is always on getting the best from the group. We use face-to-face and online platforms (including social media) to connect citizens with governments.
