The Change Agency

Voltage Control is a change agency that helps enterprises sustain innovation and teams work better together with custom-designed meetings and workshops, both in-person and virtual. Our master facilitators offer trusted guidance and custom coaching to companies who want to transform ineffective meetings, reignite stalled projects, and cut through assumptions. Based in Austin, Voltage Control designs and leads public and private workshops that range from small meetings to large conference-style gatherings.


We Lead with Workshops

Every workshop is unique. We conceive & design what you need to do to get where you’re going, not what worked for someone else. We believe that you have the answers and solutions you need, so we design our workshops to help you extract them.

Ask about our popular workshops: Design Sprints, Innovation Acceleration, Team Alignment, Design Dash, Meeting Systems, Meeting Culture, Professional Facilitation, Liberating Structures.


Our Founder

Voltage Control was founded by Douglas Ferguson, an entrepreneur and technologist with over 20 years of experience. He is a master facilitator and the author of three innovation books: Beyond the Prototype, How to Remix Anything (Co-authored), and Start Within (Co-authored).

Motivated by a mission to rid the world of horrible meetings and offer meaningful meetings in their place, Voltage Control is calling upon fellow facilitators to transform meeting and innovation culture. From free weekly community meetups to Control the Room–the annual facilitator summit, Voltage Control is building a community of facilitators to change the world.
