Stakeholder Mapping for Public Consultation

"The series of online courses created are not for the faint of heart and are by no means easy.  What they are is thought-provoking, stimulating and, even for someone who has be involved in or led consultations in the past, provide new concepts and information steering us through what is a dynamic working environment."

Lisa Thomson, Director of Communications and Patient Experience - Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust

"Very clear and comprehensive and also enabled me to take notes when required. Will certainly recommend to others."

Amanda Wells, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service

"The Consultation Institute's e-learning courses are a great way of enhancing your knowledge. They offer courses on a range of topics and you can learn from your own desk, taking as much or as little time as you need so you can learn at your own pace. They're great value for money and are a really useful way of keeping your knowledge up to date."

Mike Bailey, Corporate Consultation Manager, Canterbury City Council

"Working from home has given me more hours in the day to work on updating my skills and knowledge - something that often takes second place as there isn't time to do it all."

Caroline Richardson MCIPR, Communications Consultant, Arch Communications

"By having access to e-learning and discounted courses to multiple members of the team, we can continuously develop our knowledge and skills so that we can provide consultation support that stands up to scrutiny."

Mitchell Gadd, Senior Account Director, Freshwater UK
