Consulting & Facilitating

If you are thinking about needing a consultation or workshop, you’re probably saying things like this:

We want to brainstorm strategies to use visitor input to inform planning and design.
We would like to train our staff to conduct effective evaluations.
We need a facilitator for our staff retreat.

They often request facilitation of planning sessions, evaluation workshops for staff, and assistance with staff retreats. Some of our consulting and facilitating projects include:

Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta, GA: developed an evaluation plan for multiple departments to focus on common issues and questions about visitor experience and behavior
Institute of Texan Cultures, San Antonio TX: created a workshop on program evaluation strategies for the education department
Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe NM: facilitated preliminary staff discussions about renewing the Hispanic Heritage Wing
Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Portland OR: led a workshop to brainstorm possible strategies for visitor studies for planning Technoquest
TYPA Foundation: gave a day-and-a-half seminar about evaluation to 30 mid-career museum professionals from a variety of countries in South America
