Taskforce Support

A Taskforce is  made up of experts from across an organisation, across multiple organisations (not always sharing homogenous views) and/or from across the community.  Representatives on a taskforce can often come to the table with competing ideas and agendas, from state rivalries to ideological differences, bringing these competing interests together an be challenging.


Our team of experienced, diplomatic, discreet, and qualified project managers can support your Taskforce to deliver on time and manage complexity.  We can help the Taskforce from developing the scope of works, developing a project plan, executing the plan and delivering the final report. We have expertise in managing complex stakeholder engagement, including public consultations, targeted roundtables, and one-to-one discussions with key stakeholders. 


Bureau Services engages experienced writers that can prepare a report for our clients that distils the information gathered during stakeholder engagements into readable and easily digestible content for  the reader. Our  writers are expert at distilling complex themes and content into readable prose, and underpin key themes through graphic representations of metrics and data to demonstrate the evidence base.
