Our capacities to design effective engagement, brand strategies, communications about the issues that matter most – from food, transport, waste, energy, climate, wildlife, or water – are contingent on a few key things. This includes the ability to deeply listen, be curious, and empower those you seek to engage as partners. It’s not always clear how to do this, however. And we don’t have to go at it alone. There are methodologies available to draw on, from neuroscience, public health, behavioral science, waiting to be hacked, experimented with and scaled. My partnerships – whether businesses, NGOs, foundations, governmental agencies, students, researchers, advocates, educators – are with those working to expedite change, go deeper, push our edges. From capacity building to staff retreats, white papers and deep strategic dives for the whole organization, stakeholders or leadership team, we work collaboratively and deliver beautiful results. I especially enjoy combining talks with interactive sessions, workshops or Labs.
The energy and expertise Renee brings to our programs is invaluable. Her innovative training approach supports our staff and students to be creative and effective in the ways we take action on climate change. There’s no question our work has been strengthened by her contributions. We feel so fortunate to have her as a collaborator.
