Leveraging Our Strengths Ottawa

The LOS planning committee would like to thank all participants, presenters and facilitators whose valuable contributions made the 2013 LOS conversations a success. Your participation made a real difference in our effort to understand the basic conditions for Collective Impact and strengthening and supporting Collective Impact initiatives in Ottawa.

An evaluation form would shortly be sent to all participants for their feedback. Please take time to let us know about your views and suggestions.

Please stay tuned. We will be posting notes from the morning sessions, recommendations and suggestions for follow up activities, presentations, pictures and videos from LOS 2013 shortly.
