Clients and Projects in Open Space

I have been using Open Space Technology since 1996, after being first exposed to it at the annual conference of the International Association of Public Participation Practitioners in 1995. Since that time I have trained in Open Space Technology with Harrison Owen and Birgit Williams.

I am active in the Open Space Institute of Canada, and in the international community of Open Space Technology practitioners. In 2001 I co-hosted the ninth annual Open Space on Open Space in Vancouver. As an Open Space Technology trainer, I have developed and offered practice workshops with Birgitt Williams, Michael Herman, Judi Richardson and Harrison Owen.
