Coherent Cities exists to help organisations communicate, collaborate and compete more coherently, based on the premise that all successes – and most failures – come back to people. We believe the way to give projects and teams more traction is by helping the people involved be more effective, whether that’s through confidence, market intelligence, inclusion, finding common language or finding the right partners.

Director Lisa Taylor is the connector and core of the company, delivering the services listed on this site. We also coordinate associate input, adding socio-economic, placemaking and masterplanning consultancy; political, policy and demographic research; sustainability assessment; cross-sector recruiting; organisational development and more.

Let’s find out what you need – and help you get there.
