From Conflict to Conversation: Practical Skills for Better Public Dialogue

"...expertly-executed..."

Jody Ulich, President, Arts Council of Fort Worth...

“The greatest ambition for a Cultural Plan is to unite a city’s diverse population in a bold and authentic statement of shared desires and expectations.  

Matt designed and facilitated a series of public meetings, held throughout the city, affording the breadth of our community the opportunity to meaningfully participate in creative and energizing discussions.“Participants evaluated the sessions saying things like, ‘best public meeting ever’ to ‘fun’ and ‘unexpected’.   Matt was able to work magic with rooms ranging from 20 to 200 participants.  The meetings were inclusive, respectful and inviting and the insights we gathered from the exercises Matt led were priceless.

“Thanks to Matt’s expertly-executed public process, our community’s Cultural Plan won’t just be a list of what we are planning to do – but a place of real connection and excitement for the people of our community who will continue to play a vital role in transforming that plan into reality.”
