Ambassador Event

How Can We Reimagine Local Government

Control the Room Ambassador: Eric Keck

Everyone is frustrated at one time or another with government services but how can we help to influence change that will be noticeable? The goal behind this workshop will be to look at what nudges and simple changes could be introduced to help with ensuring that the future provision of government services does not continue to frustrate its constituents, and rather benefit all its communities.

What to expect

The Ambassador Event Experience

We're excited to launch Control The Room Ambassador events, hosted by our one-of-a-kind ambassadors each month, to continue the conversation to the future of facilitation. In these events, you'll have an experience like no other to ideate together with other networks and communities apart of the Facilitation Lab and beyond. These sessions will be hosted each month by our diverse group of ambassadors from the Facilitation Lab, so stay tuned for more events to mark your calendars.

Key Questions to Ask Yourself

When could your group use more energy? When was the last time your group was excited & inspired at work? When was the last time they opened up, bellied up, and tackled a hard problem with vulnerability and resolve? How about a break? Would they welcome just a few moments to breathe and relax? With all our modern hullabaloo, how can you help everyone block out distractions and focus?

How You'll Learn

This event will be activity-based to open the conversation about local government. You’ll recognize, practice, and learn from other facilitators in the room with Eric at the helm. He won’t just talk at you — you’ll learn through ideating together, work with other participants, and gather feedback. This is an interactive experience to learn from one another and gain inspiration to reimagine our local government in our communities.
