Our specialized team of consultants bring together community development and social innovation competencies that include collective impact, change management, governance and social value capture, with technical expertise in professional disciplines such as engineering, community planning, and management consulting.
Our ambitions are to be impactful in the practical and applied sense. This is action-oriented, we use lots of verbs, we aspire to get things done and make change happen. We believe that great ideas that address many of our toughest issues are out there, and the challenge lies in scaling and implementation.
