I’m Jason Diceman, a professional meeting facilitator, public participation expert, inventor of meeting facilitation tools, and goofy dad of three.
I lead the planning and implementation of large multi-stakeholder collaborative workshops that give clear results. I also design and manage productive community engagement processes.
You can find me on twitter as @IdeaRatingGuy and on LinkedIn
Since 2010, I have held the full time position of Senior Public Consultation Coordinator for the City of Toronto. I have lead public consultations for some of the City’s most controversial and high profile infrastructure studies, including downtown separated bike lane installations, the redesign of Front Street at Union Station, new roads and bridges in Liberty Village, contentious multi-use trails, and the Gardiner Expressway financing. I also conduct workshops among staff, management and stakeholders.
In 2004, I invented idea rating sheets (originally called “Dotmocracy Sheets”). These simple paper based tools make it easy to find agreements among large numbers of people, both within and outside of meetings. Idea rating sheets are now used by 500+ meeting facilitators in over 33 countries, in 15+ different languages.
In 2014 I came up with my new invention: follow the story of Feedback Frames on my blog.
Thanks for being a part of the journey!
