Effective meetings don’t just magically happen; this is especially true for meetings that need to be highly participative.  Whether planning for a small group of eight or a large group of several hundred, DTA can help you make your meetings more engaging and effective in achieving results. Working with a planning team of representative participants, our process ensures that every meeting has a clear purpose and desired outcomes and a design flow that enables the right people to have the right conversations at the right time.  Participants feel their voice has been heard and respected, and they walk out the door ready to act on the decisions they’ve made together.

Applications for this service include board retreats, annual meetings, conferences, public comment meetings, and think-tank sessions.  We can provide both design and facilitation, or just help you design your meeting and then coach leaders and others on principles of effective facilitation.
