ideation and facilitation

Furious ideation in progress.

When there is a group involved, both the benefits and the challenges increase. My clients most often ask me to lead retreats and team work sessions in:

  • brainstorming new programs and revenue streams
  • building stakeholdership with partners
  • training departments in best practices
  • optimizing business models due to changed environmental conditions
  • overcoming organizational resistance to change

How are you thinking big? Are you creating an environment for innovation to thrive? If your organization is not swimming for the horizon, it is treading water, or worse, slowly sinking. What is the cost of doing nothing? Let’s discuss the challenges you are facing, and make a plan today. 

“Thank you so much! This is all such fantastic work. I love that there could be really concrete (and sometimes simple) fixes. I also love how the rating system as well as your presentation really challenged the grantees to think about their online marketing in terms of quantifiable measurements – something that I think they are not used to doing, but now with the technology are able to pretty easily. I am pleased to see CCF arts grantees already implementing suggestions and seeing results.”

“For his deep knowledge of marketing and the Internet (and where the two come together), his passion and commitment to his work, his natural gifts as a teacher and discussion moderator, his impressive connections in the field (through whom he continuously enriches his base of knowledge), and his all-around likable and generous demeanor, I give Ron my highest recommendation.”

"It was a pleasure learning from Ron's expertise and deep knowledge of marketing during the course of the ENGAGE: Arts and Marketing Social Media Workshop Series presented by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Ron went above and beyond as the program designer and spent time individually analyzing each participating organization's marketing channels while giving strategic insight and advice into each participant's work. What is especially great about learning from Ron is his passion for understanding and implementing CURRENT marketing trends. Many marketing companies tend to give out dated data; Ron not only gave current and relevant information, he allowed us insight into his studies. I highly recommend his services, and look forward to working with him in the future."
