WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN
A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION

UPCOMING CONVERSATIONS . . .

Dec 13th – Exploring Organization Assessments

Using Zoom, a virtual platform, ODF will facilitate 60-minute Community Conversations around the themes that came from posing questions at the 2016 conference:

  • What is the “Learning Edge” for you and your client/company?p2pconversations[1]
  • What emerging trends are you seeing?

Each of these conversations will be led by a different community member who will design the session offering the opportunity for any community member to participate.  Our hope is that the talks will be so engaging it will lead to a continuing dialogue beyond what we help arrange.

Sharing wisdom & experience . . .

One of the most often heard comments after one of our annual conferences is, “how amazing it is to be in a room of fellow designers, who are so willing to share their wisdom and experience!” How would you like to have access to that wisdom more than annually?
