Organizational Development & Learning Solutions

Event Management

An event is never just an event. There’s always a reason for it and a message behind the why the event is happening. By definition, events have a beginning, middle and end, and we assess the elements of each thoughtfully.  All of our events begin with an end goal and are customized precisely for your audience, objectives, and desired participant experience.

Conference planning: Our team is uniquely positioned to offer a range of conference and event planning services. Our capabilities include event scheduling; logistics planning; sourcing speakers and presenters; and arranging accommodations.

Group facilitation: Our network of senior consultants can provide group facilitation to achieve specific outcomes from team building; issues resolution; goal setting; or focus groups to collect needed data.

Project management: Many of our client organizations need to run large complex projects in order to achieve their organizational goals, but they don’t have the time or skills to successfully manage the project time lines, resources or budget. Let our skilled team of project managers handle all of your project logistics to ensure you meet your stated objectives on-time and within budget.

We have successfully provided conference services on an on-going, annual basis for many state agencies, non-profit organizations, and private industry clients including:

  • Annual Massachusetts STEM Summit
  • Hampshire Council of Governments
  • Mass Commission for the Blind: Western Mass Region Employer Event
  • State Agency Senior Leadership Annual Board Retreats
