Metal folding chairs, a community hall basement, slightly damp and cold with a fluorescent light flickering in the corner. The same, six or seven people as last month’s meeting, seated there in front of you. Perhaps you remember when this was the setting for our work. We sure do.
We also remember when we realized things needed to change. Online platforms were transforming the way people interacted, voiced opinions, and digested information. Community engagement needed to be a part of this revolution. This is why Bang the Table was formed.
Our comprehensive online engagement platform and strategic guidance were developed through our own years of experience in and around government. We employ passion and insight to help you reach, inform, and involve residents in policy development and decisions that affect their lives. Since 2006, we’ve empowered 750 organizations to engage with well over 9 million citizens globally.
