About DragonGate

Our research and market intelligence breaks down the challenges of the UK public sector into manageable areas of business focus.

Making Public Sector reform a challenge, not a barrier

Having the confidence to enter new and culturally different markets takes courage, perseverance and most of all strong practical understanding of the areas you want to do business. Working with the public sector is no different.
Since our formation in 2012 our evidence-based, step-by-step approach in imparting knowledge and practical understanding has empowered companies we have worked with to do better business with the complex, policy-driven needs of public sector clients.

DragonGate research and market intelligence (DGMI) breaks down the manifold challenges and vastness of the UK public sector into manageable areas of business focus.

Clients we have worked with

Through qualitative research and our deep experience and consideration of people, processes and policy, DragonGate’s project management team works with clients from both the public and private sector to: –

  • increase levels of market awareness and credibility
  • deliver successful engagement strategies that offer the strongest possible return on investment
  • help challenge, design and take forward new, innovative but realistic solutions to ‘wicked’ problems.

We run exclusive, thought-provoking seminars under Chatham House rules for senior public leaders from across the public sector to address seemingly disparate but connected agendas for transforming public services.
Our approach throughout is to work closely with our clients to provide tailored, pragmatic, mini-programme approaches which provide lasting and tangible results.

Mission Statement

We strongly believe that stronger, better models of design that support public service transformation are required

Place-based models are more attractive than top-down reorganisation

However, for those seeking to change or engage whether in the public or private sectors there are three main barriers:

Where to start – it’s so
big, immense
and labyrinthine;

How to keep it relevant
– making sure longer-
term value isn’t pushed
away by short term focus;

How to engage – without
wasting everyone’s
time, effort and resources

DragonGate is made up of former leaders of public service and entrepreneurs looking to help private and public sector achieve their future models through dealing with;

Size – breaking down the
sector into bite-sized chunks
through rigorous market
intelligence

How to make relevant
– working with partners on
a business case and
evidence base for change

How to engage – organising
to-way test and confirm
events to discuss, share
and learn
