Ben Roberts is a systemic change agent and process artist. Since 2009, his work has focused on convening and hosting both in-person and virtual conversations in service to initiatives for change. He specializes in making virtual events come alive, either as stand-alone events or in conjunction with in-person gatherings.
He has extensive experience adapting large group conversational processes such as World Cafe, Open Space Technology and Appreciative Inquiry to the virtual realm, as well as integrating in-person and virtual formats within a single conversation, gathering or engagement. Ben uses these processes to support collaboration, to build communities of practice and purpose, and to host large scale conversations in service to the work being done across multiple dimensions of global systemic transformation.
