What We Do
Our consulting work is focused on enabling change through engaging face-to-face events and digital experiences and multi-stakeholder collaborative processes. We are focused on helping clients ignite transformative change through social and public policy innovation.
We bring together ad hoc project teams of some of the leading practitioners from a number of fields of practice: facilitation, design, strategy and digital media. Have a look at our Associates page to get a sense of our capabilities.
We make events collaborative, participatory and engaging by combining high quality content and face-to-face dialogue that is extended online through digital media.
We provide facilitation services to help groups collaborate more effectively, tapping the skills and knowledge of our participants.
We help organizations work with very diverse stakeholders to help develop transformative ideas to effect positive change. We have access to a wide variety of methods and practitioners that are suited to a variety of contexts.
We help organizations develop strategies to engage their constituencies, both face-to-face and online. We believe that digital social engagement does not replace the need for face-to-face interaction and that both modes can and should compliment each other.
