Brief History

A registered B-Corp organization, Bang the Table’s mission is to improve the quality of public debate and level of community involvement in public life. Through technology and strategic industry insight our aim is to continuously innovate and add value to the public participation industry. Our expertise in the online space aims to empower organizations and the communities they care about by providing them affordable and accessible opportunities to learn about and contribute to the decisions that affect their daily lives.

Why digital public engagement?
Bang the Table was established because no matter how well designed the off-line consultation processes, inevitably it only reaches only a small segment of a community or stakeholder group.


The online space provides the opportunity to give vastly more people access to information and enable them to have their say. At the heart of this is our EngagementHQ software. An online toolbox that puts everything professionals need to drive inclusive, sustainable and measurable public participation projects. The tools were designed so that the platform can be tailored to the users needs – you choose what tools you need and create your project using them. This exceptional range of digital tools empowers collaborative learning, discussion and debate.

Our founders
Still at the helm, Bang the Table’s founders are a mixture of public participation professionals and IT experts. This ensures we always have, and always will offer more than just a software solution.

Matthew Crozier and Dr. Crispin Butteriss come from a Government and public participation background; both leading or providing advice about community engagement, government relations, communications and strategic planning. Karthik Reddy, has an extensive Information Technology background building enterprise level web-software for the some of the biggest brands in Australia and globally from insurance, banking and real estate.
