We recently had the sad and shocking news of the sudden death of a much-loved and respected colleague, Kai Rudat, who had been a director at OPM for more than 16 years, and of Dialogue by Design since January 2012. A service of remembrance took place on 27th November and many current and former OPM and Dialogue by Design members attended to pay their respects. We expect to make arrangements to commemorate Kai's life and many contributions to public services at a future date.
Dialogue by Design is now part of the OPM Group. OPM is an independent public interest company that builds capacity to improve social results.
OPM and Dialogue by Design have collaborated for a number of years on consultation projects covering science, health and the environment and have strong shared values. Dialogue by Design's capacity complements the consultation and engagement expertise that is a long established part of OPM's portfolio.
Co-founder of Dialogue by Design Pippa Hyam, who will continue to work on an associate basis, said: "OPM has always been a natural partner for us, with complementary values, ways of working, skills and expertise. Being part of the OPM Group will allow Dialogue by Design to continue to deliver the highest standards of support to existing clients whilst developing new relationships."
See our press release for more details about the acquisition.
Prior to 2011, Dialogue by Design published a regular email newsletter providing news on our work and a range of articles and think-pieces. While we no longer publish the newsletter, we have archived the articles in our Newsletter archive as we believe that the points discussed are still relevant in many cases and may prove of interest to others.
