Engagement, Consultation & Facilitation

Public participation is sometimes viewed as a burdensome requirement of the planning and design process. At HB Lanarc, it is central to our success—and that of our clients.

We invite diverse stakeholders in community, business, academia, and/or the non-profit sector to bring their knowledge, concerns, and ideas to the table. We use dialogue-based facilitation and collaborative design to build trust, which helps create shared solutions that would not otherwise have seen the light of day.

When it comes to bringing a wide range of viewpoints together around important issues and answering strategic questions together, we simply lead the field. Invariably, our approach yields greater trust and understanding, a wider range of options and strategies, more support, and a better outcome.

Services include:

  • Highly interactive open houses and community forums
  • Customized small group workshops
  • Conversation Circles, Cafes, and Open Space events
  • Retreats, strategic planning events, and organizational change
  • Training and education in effective engagement
