Workshops & Community Consultation

We apply our expertise in facilitation, business strategy and communications to stimulate meaningful dialogue and deliver high energy workshops that propel your business and community relationships forward.

OUR EXPERTISE

Community and Stakeholder Consultation
The most successful businesses regularly engage in meaningful dialogue with internal and external stakeholders. We are accustomed to working with complex stakeholder groups, communities and management teams. We understand the nuances of gathering ‘fingerprints’ and will guide you through the steps to build consensus, adoption and enthusiasm around internal change.

As your partner, we facilitated conversation and develop communications strategies that open up dialogue, capture ideas and input and form relationships built on respect. Importantly, research insights and data introduce new information that helps shed internal bias and broaden perspectives.

Some of our typical engagements include:

  • Building alignment among complex internal stakeholder groups e.g. universities
  • Community open houses and consultation for residential/mixed-use real estate developments
  • Project envisioning sessions
  • Navigating complex and controversial projects to capture input, enhance communication to build understanding and align multi-stakeholder groups. Resource, transportation and utility sectors as examples

We live in an age of exponential change in which rapid innovation is disrupting and unseating incumbent products and industries, creating new frontiers and challenging nearly everything we know about business. This workshop is designed to give leaders and management teams a better view of their future in order to make better decisions today, to Future Proof your business. To create your future rather than be disrupted by it.

How to create a compelling case for PE, VC or Angel Investment
Most technology offerings fail to be commercially viable, in part, because most are undiscovered by the target audience and investors. With a plethora of compelling technology offerings in the US, Canada and globally, investors have options. Most start-ups subconsciously believe that everyone will see the same dream and a deluge of information will convince private equity firms to feel the same passion. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Most investor pitches are convoluted, complex, and feature-based, failing to trigger the combination of tactical and emotional response critical to buy-in.

Rapid change is redefining every business across industries. It requires leaders to remain nimble, to anticipate where risks and opportunities lie and how to exploit.
