Together we can design and deliver transformative learning experiences.

Our team uses immersive and creative practices to nurture generative dialogue, collaboration and learning. We have vast experience supporting complex objectives, teams, and processes, and have designed and facilitated hundreds of workshops, programs, webinars, and trainings globally. 

We design with people at the heart, tailoring curriculum, content, and facilitation for diverse audiences, learning styles, and education levels. We establish community agreements with each participant group to enable a safe and engaging space for individuals to reflect, share, and progress tangible work.

Roots & Rivers consulting provided excellent guidance to our team - both to the Board of Directors of the society, as well as to our Executive Director (staff). Their team has excellent facilitators and ensured that conversations were productive, collaborative, and clear for all involved. I would highly recommend Roots & Rivers as consultants for team projects and organizational planning.
