“Since taking both of your courses (SDIC and CPO), I have made some very controversial projects move forward where, in the past, we have stalled. My two biggest opponents — both of whom originally greeted my proposal with ‘Over My Dead Body’ — are now two of my biggest supporters! – Roland Hawk, Wisconsin Department of Transportation
“I have to be careful what I ask for — it is scary how well SDIC works!” – Rick Manchester, Parks and Recreation Director and “Implementation Genius wanna-be”, City of Two Rivers, WI
“I’ve already used some of the specific tools (along with Hans’ ideas) to begin to lay the groundwork for my upcoming ‘working group’.” – Mark Weston, Director, Division of Conservation, Colorado
“For a major, 13 million dollar project at the food co-op I was managing at the time, we developed very significant buy-in from our diverse membership of over 7,000 members.” – Alex Gyori, Earth Bridge Community Land Trust, Inc.
“Critical. We work with stakeholders daily and helping build Consent is a huge component of this success.” – Kathryn Klietz, Big Sky Public Relations, Montana
“It has made me unafraid to engage people because I know I have the tools to get them on board with our projects.” – Kylie Pierce, Rome Capitol Arts Complex, New York
“The training was great – I’m looking forward to using the knowledge we learned in the session in my day to day work!” – Becky Smith, Regional Communications Manager, Nuclear Waste Management Organization, Canada
“Consent-Building is very systematic and structured per the Bleikers’ training, yet it’s flexible for effectively overcoming NIMBYs, naysayers, and competing politics. Bleiker’s work is genius. The real magic happens in the training.” – Kenneth Ray, RJS Justice Services, Ashland, KY
Public-Sector Work Is more Difficult
(without a proven strategy)
Communicating Your Technical Work
The public CAN understand your technical, even scientific, work. There are specific steps to get stakeholders and policymakers to understand your recommendations.
Who IS Your Public?
And who isn’t? Do you need to inform everyone about everything? Know why the Silent Majority doesn’t engage until late in the process? And why opponents are the most engaged?
Proven Outreach Method
If the public doesn’t understand your work, your effectiveness is at stake. No matter your area of expertise, our approach is proven to make you highly effective.
