Our Convening Model

Convening Value Chain

At Wingspread, we firmly believe there are always solutions to the myriad of problems we face, no matter how large or complex. But, solutions are only as effective as the breadth, depth and duration of active support they receive. Our unique convening model is designed to ensure our conferences inspire solutions with that kind of sustained impact.

Tackling the many issues that afflict our society requires a progression through a series of distinct process phases. By systematically engaging individuals at each stage in this process, we steadily advance the issue along the value chain toward results. Intimate face-to-face meetings have proven to be a critical way to ensure movement from one stage to the next.

Our Convening Value Chain Includes: 

  • Explore Concerns
  • Identify Problems
  • Understand Problems
  • Define Solutions
  • Plan Action
  • Take Action
  • Achieve Results
