Strategic Forums

Consulting Collaborative facilitates Strategic Forums hosted by architects, interior designers, consulting engineers and building product manufacturers.

We do all the work with respect to developing the prospectus, the meeting agenda based upon attendee input, make sure the group operates within anti-trust guidelines, facilitate discussions and provide input based upon “best practices”, enhance the group dynamics for balanced participation, encourage creativity, build consensus and intervene when necessary to keep the group focused on the agenda, motivate everyone to be creative and, as appropriate “think outside the box”, take minutes for the duration of the forum and distribute to all participants and focus on achieving exceptional results.
