Meeting Design & Facilitation
A Community Based Approach
We design and host gatherings that allow community members to engage in authentic and meaningful conversations. These events connect community members, foster mutual respect among participants, and forge social connections that lead to productive solutions for community challenges. As a community convener, CEI can also hosts public forums, informal gatherings, and celebrations.
Community Heart & Soul ®
Coaches know what it takes to get things up and running. They guide communities through Community Heart & Soul ® using creative community engagement and involving everyone in identifying what matters most to the community.
A Path Forward
We provide incubation services for community-based projects, organizations and start ups. We support projects by supplying general organizational needs—this can include community outreach, convening, retreat planning, donor, and fundraising strategies.
