Facilitators, Project Managers, Business Analysts, Business Architects, Data Analysts, Managers, Lawyers, and anyone who uses facilitation skills in their work. We are looking for a broad range of people so that we may learn from each other.


We have a three-hour event planned focusing on:

Creating the Appropriate Solution to Ensure Success

        What you can do when working with clients to ensure the appropriate solutions are developed.

        What the Chapter can do to help you during the next year.

We begin with an opening exercise in which you and small teams will develop ways to deal with problems surrounding creating appropriate solutions.

Then, Rocky Romero, of Profit Coaching, will guide you through developing a Business Model Canvas to generate a business model for how to address creating appropriate solutions.

We finish with Open Space to delve further into topics identified in the first two hours, finishing with what the Chapter can do for you.


You will gain:

        New ideas through experience and information-sharing

        New contacts through networking

        New vigor by challenging you and stimulating your thinking.
