Commission training & consultancy
Creating economies that are democratic, equitable and liveable, and enable communities to meet their needs and priorities, requires bottom-up transformation at an individual and community level, as well as changes in government, the media, education and business.
We know that implementing this transformation could be messy and complicated. Our bespoke training and strategic consultancy offer provides tailored support and solutions for the problems that you are working on.
Our expertise is in economics communication, education and participation.
The support we can offer includes:
- Bespoke workshops and training
- Tailored talks and presentations
- Facilitator training and resource creation
- Community engagement and outreach
- Strategy development
We work with a diverse range of partners to provide these services, from local charities to economic institutions.

Economics communication training
Our economics communication training is designed to help experts and politicians build confidence and gain practical tools to be able to talk about the economy with non-experts in an engaging and accessible way. We have delivered bespoke training to government civil servants at the Exploring Economics annual conference and local government councillors in the West Midlands.
Welsh Government – Economic communication consultancy and research
In 2020, we were commissioned by the Welsh Government’s Economy & Transport communications team to produce a report on how they could improve the accessibility of their economic communication and engage more people in meaningful conversation about the future of the Welsh economy.
Building Communities Trust – Facilitator training and resource creation
We were commissioned by the Building Communities Trust to train a group of community organisers in Gwynedd North Wales to run Economy’s Community Economy Crash Course. Working with the organisers we adapted the course to connect with the experience, needs and priorities of local communities and the area’s local economy, history and culture.
Bank of England – The Economy Lab
Over the last few years we have worked with the Bank of England to coordinate and support each other’s public engagement activities, and to share learning. We have recently established a formal partnership with the Bank to support the development and launch of its new digital community platform, the Economy Hub.
