Convenings are my favorite service to provide.

One of the best conferences I’ve been to in 40 years!

I specialize in immersive and participatory experiences that foster deep connections between attendees. If requested, I can design a convening with a focus on creating an authentic and engaged experience with the host city/community.

My focus is on using a collaborative and democratic design process to engage attendees in shaping a convening (aka conference) that will serve their learning, network/coalition needs. On average for a convening with 150 people in attendance about 40-50 will have been engaged in the planning process.

I’ve produced and planned convenings in:

Appalachia - Knoxville/Harlan County
Los Angeles
New Orleans
