I specialize in the design and facilitation of deeply meaningful, engaging, and often difficult conversations - amongst diverse stakeholders and within the community.
Dish & Dialogues
Coquitlam125, City of Coquitlam
Part of Coquitlam’s 125th anniversary celebrations, a unique dinner series that blended ethnic food with lively and intimate conversation about living, working and playing in Coquitlam. The series highlighted Coquitlam's diversity and brought local residents together for an evening of storytelling and community building.
"This opening Dish & Dialogues session proved fruitful, forging new bonds between neighbours and uniting residents together over shared connections, stories, and memories of Coquitlam."
