The cliché is, “The most interesting part of the meeting was the breaks.” Common Knowledge Associates designs meetings that are as interactive as the breaks!
Nancy pulled off a great feat at the US Army KM conference. She got the whole room talking, all 200 of them! It broke the mold of presentation after presentation. The conference feedback was overwhelmingly, "Let's do more of this at the next conference." - COL Charles Burnett, Deputy Director, Center for Army Lessons Learned, Fort Leavenworth, KS 913-684-9584, DSN 552-9584
Designing and facilitating interactive events is the most frequently asked for service at Common Knowledge Associates. Clients speak of Nancy Dixon as the consummate facilitator – able to get even the toughest groups engaged.
From long experience we know that we can be most helpful when we are involved early in the planning stage of a conference or retreat. There is certainly skill in the facilitation, but it is the way the meeting is structured that makes the greatest difference. Common Knowledge Associates works with the planning committee to design the structure of the event, space, and facilitation to produce events that meet and exceed the client’s goals.
Always, foremost in our minds is, “how to leverage all the knowledge in the room.” After meetings we hear over and over that, “The presenters were good, but it was the opportunity to have in-depth discussion with peers that made the meeting so unique.”
