Keynotes & Masterclass

Keynote addresses, symposiums and master classes are excellent ways of bringing potential partners into a serious conversation about ABCD and community building. These environments are clarifying and invite people to make an informed commitment to a process that works locally.

Recorded presentations:

Building Community Capacity for North West Employers

Sustainable community development: from what’s wrong to what’s strong at TEDxExeter


The relationship between organisations and communities is changing and this change is going to require a fundamental shift in behaviour from both officers in organisations and residents in communities.

In this master class we will look at three fundamental questions for creating sustainable and resilient communities:

  • What can communities do that organisations cannot?
  • What can organisations do that communities cannot?
  • What can communities do with organisations that neither can do alone?
