Facilitating Change is a boutique consultancy focusing on international, nonprofit, and community development.
We are strategists, geeks, researchers, and designers who bring a wealth of experience, ideas, and connections.
Clients hire us to design strategies, facilitate events, conduct assessments, and create stunning communication and training materials. We do all of this, but we’re always doing something bigger: building the capacity to it without us. We like to think of this as stealth organizational development ;)
We’ll help you refine your goals and empathize with your audiences. We’ll organize and visualize your data. Together we’ll amplify your voice and create beautiful experiences, materials, and technologies.
Oh, and in case you hadn’t noticed, our approach is open and people-centric, with an entrepreneurial, irreverent twist.
Facilitating Change was founded and is managed by Christine Prefontaine. We work by assembling lightweight teams to fit each engagement. Contact us to learn more.
