Asset Based Community Development Masterclass
When: August 14, 2019, 9:00am - 4:00pm
Cost: $275 (includes GAT)

The relationship between organizations and communities is changing and this change is going to require a fundamental shift in behavior from both officers in organizations and residents in communities. In this stretching and refreshing Masterclass, Peter Kenyon, who is a thought and practice leader in Asset Based Community Development, will demonstrate why he believes that the traditional customer segmentation and needs analysis approaches are the way of the past, and that a focus on assets and strengths is the future.
