You know that over-quoted directive from Gandhi to “be the change you wish to see in the world“–? I believe most people want to do something to make the world a better place but often need information, tools, or other resources to effect that desired change. That’s where I come in.
In 2012, I launched a consultancy with the core goal of empowering people to be active and informed stewards of our communities and environment through services that strengthen community-driven initiatives, advance forward thinking policy-making, and build effective public-private partnerships. My current focus lies in the realm of community engagement.
We can work together to: strengthen–or launch–community-driven and volunteer-powered projects; engage stakeholders through targeted community outreach; craft and implement effective communication strategies; and identify and create other skill-building opportunities for you and your team.
