Capire is proud to be a leading voice in community engagement practice


About Us

Capire Consulting Group is Australia’s largest specialist community engagement consultancy. Our name comes from the Italian word ‘capire’ – meaning to listen, understand – which defines what Capire is about and what we help our clients achieve.

Since 2007, our pioneering engagement strategies have led to positive outcomes on thousands of projects – strengthening relationships, informing decision-making, and building knowledge.
