Are you concerned about low response rates for your evaluations? Sometimes getting survey responses can be a difficult task. Culture Counts help you review your distribution methods and establish an effective plan to maximise your sample size and engage a mix of demographics representative of your audience.

While the answer is partly dependent on context, here is a list of the key things we advise to promote and facilitate engagement throughout the evaluation process.
