All of my workshops have a story based backbone formed around Participatory Narrative Inquiry which maximises engagement, uses story to reveal the true ‘what is’ and ‘what is possible’ and enables the participants to make their own sense of what to do next.
Having worked with the cynefin framework for more than 20 years the overarching format is that of Probe-Sense-Respond.
All of this is built upon using insights from ABCD (Asset Based Community Development), Theory U, Oxford TRIZ and many more.
I have developed three ‘core’ training courses which I can offer as individual days or can be reshaped, combined or added to as your requirements demand.
Working with Story – Facilitation – Complex Problem Solving
Each of these are packed full of actionable insights, hands-on exercises and supported by, as you might expect, lots of teaching stories.
Advice, Coaching and Speaking
I have a great deal of experience in supporting and developing bids, especially engaging with stakeholders and developing a portfolio of ideas.
I have helped to launch dozens of new initiatives, bringing people together and building a collaborative community.
I am happy to support your work in any way I can add value. I can add an interesting talk to your conference or event or even build you a WordPress site for your project as I have done for two recent University Research Initiatives.
Ecology of Knowledge was formed in August 2008 after Ron had completed seven years in HMRC doing Systems Analysis then 21 years at English Nature, developing systems that support Nature Conservation. He was working in Knowledge Management there when he first met Dave Snowden in 1998 who introduced him to Narrative, Complexity and Anthropology.
No workshop or event is too big for this approach. Please get in touch if you are interested in adding some magic to your next conference, event or even just a management meeting.
Ron can be secured on a competitive daily rate or a call-off contract.
