What I Do
I Facilitate small to large group meetings, retreats, conferences and unConferences, using the interactive participant driven method Open Space Technology.
Capture the Power of Self-Organization
to Engage Your Most Pressing Issues!
In self-organizing systems, order (solutions) do not come from above or outside; it emerges from the interactions of the agents (participants) in the system. @DrDCWahl
Open Space Technology
Open Space Technology (OST) is an interactive, participant driven process where participants set the agenda, meet in concurrent and overlapping discussions around a theme or an issue, across department, hierarchical or historically opposite lines.
The cross-pollination created by moving from group to group and topic to topic in a nonlinear way, allows participants to shift quickly from familiar ways of thinking into innovation and action, going where they feel they are learning and contributing and moving to another group when they are not.
Open Space is a simple, powerful way to catalyze effective working conversations through a powerful group process that supports positive transformation in organizations, increases productivity, inspires creative solutions, improves communication and enhances collaboration.
All About Open Space
An unConference can quickly access collective intelligence and passion while building a field of relationships that will put ideas to work!

Try an Open Space Conference
~ an unConference ~
Through inviting all the stakeholders or interested parties, asking key questions, and facilitating the creation of a final agenda on-site and in real time, you create the space for something new to happen. No predetermined agenda of talking heads on stage can do it justice.
Not all unConference's are Created Equal
