What Others Had to Say About The Training

Shannon Jennings

Shannon Jennings

"The Strategic Doing Practitioner Training was an eye opener to how much of the new knowledge I was missing from hanging out on the periphery! I am so much more clear on how to work step by step through the SD model and bring a workshop together. There is still an incredible amount to learn and experience, but there is a support system behind it all that make it a safe space to try.

Phillip Ellis

"For years, my mission has been to unite people around a common goal. Yet, despite our best intentions, too often these efforts stumbled, lacking a clear bridge from brainstorming to real-world impact. That changed with Strategic Doing—a proven approach that not only guides collaborations through a step-by-step approach to tackle wicked problems but also rebuilds trust and respect within our communities and networks. Completing the practitioner course has only deepened my belief in its transformative power."


Jennifur Newhouse

It is a field-tested practical approach to leverage networks and ecosystems quickly — just what we need now to survive and thrive." We use it, because it WORKS!"

Over the course of 15 hours in the program, you’ll be gaining knowledge on ecosystem design, skills in guiding ecosystem development, and a strategic approach for effective design. We can ensure you’ll see these changes because the course focuses on entrepreneurial ecosystem design, teaches the Strategic Doing approach, and is suitable for both urban and rural settings. All of this comes together in order to provide you with the most innovative approach to creating successful ecosystems.
