Our services

ways we can work with you

Consulting and coaching

Consulting and coaching are not merely how we make a living and support our research and writing. Engaging with your challenges in practice is also how we gain new insights. Working in ways that you benefit from our experience, we test the usefulness of our concepts, theories, and techniques. It is a learning partnership from which both parties benefit. 

Presentations and conversations

We give keynotes at public conferences,  academic conferences, and closed events. This can be online or face-to-face. In both cases, we always try to include some interaction with the audience, either as part of the keynote or in a follow-up session. We prefer joint keynotes, in which we can interweave our diverse experiences and perspectives.

We also offer webinars for smaller groups, as well as “conversations with the authors” for college classes and reading groups.

Event support

Convening events that open spaces for significant learning is a delicate art.

We help design and run events with a view to developing the learning capability of the group. This happens when participants take initiative, use their imagination, and express their uncertainties–creating a space in which they can learn to make a difference they care to make, individually and collectively.

We have a long experience of supporting the convening of events to give this much-needed social learning twist. It is especially useful in the convening of complex events that bring together multiple voices and perspectives. It includes dealing with conflictual situations and difficult cross-boundary encounters.

We can support conveners in preparation, design, facilitation, and follow-up.

At our Lab

Our Social Learning Lab in Sesimbra, Portugal, is an ideal venue for your events. We offer it for holding a variety of events, including workshops, meetings, and retreats of various kinds. The beauty of the place is inspiring. And our hosting and facilitation add a welcome social learning twist to the whole thing.
