The Consultation Institute Conference 2017

Where next for public engagement?

DATE: 7th June 2017

VENUE: ETC Maple House, Birmingham (150 Corporation St, Birmingham B4 6TB)


Meaningful consultation has traditionally relied upon trust and confidence that public bodies told the truth and genuinely listen. The post-truth age challenges these assumptions and some fear a retreat from evidence-based decision-making.

This Conference explores the implications and offers practical solutions for consultation and engagement professionals, policy-makers and managers of public services across the UK.
