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.
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 hundreds of meeting facilitators in over 33 different countries, in more than 15 different languages. www.idearatingsheets.org
In 2014 I came up with my new invention: Feedback Frames. Follow the story of Feedback Frames on my blog
