The 2017 Teeny Tiny Summits focus on economic development in Ontario’s smallest communities. Don’t miss it!
- Peter Kenyon. That’s right, the renowned Australian community development expert is returning to Ontario. Mr. Kenyon has worked with over 2000 communities in 59 countries. He initiated the Bank of I.D.E.A.S. (Initiatives for the Development of Enterprising Action and Strategies). He is a gripping storyteller with wisdom to share from all over the world about effective community development initiatives. Mr. Kenyon will provide the keynote address to kick off the summits and spend the rest of the day with us.
- Ideas to Action: This year, the summits are focused on collaborative thinking, and developing strategies to support rural communities. You will be learning from other communities who wrestle with the same challenges. You will develop key priorities for moving your challenges forward.
- The day is focused on what matters to small communities. There are some topics that are “nice-to-haves” in larger communities, but “make-or-break” in Teeny Tiny Places. We will be focusing the day on six of those issues:
a. Municipal-volunteer relationships
b. Risk Management/insurance for community groups
c. Small village servicing
d. Big Data for Small Places
e. Strategic Planning for small places/community groups
f. Finding your story and telling it
Spend a day in the company of people who are just as passionate about small places as you are. You will go back to your community with energy, ideas, and optimism.
Sessions will be held in:
June 28, 2017; 9 am – 4 pm
June 29, 2017; 9 am – 4 pm-
