Philip Denning, Cincinnati’s Director of Community & Economic Development

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

In casual conversations with architects and developers, I’ve heard interesting accounts of exploratory meetings and interactions that are conducted with community stakeholders during a community planning process. Of interest is the work of Philip Denning, our guest on this edition of the VIEWS Podcast. Prior to joining the City of Cincinnati, where he is director of Community and Economic Development, Phil’s work for a New Orleans architecture and planning firm involved him with vital community engagement projects post-hurricane Katrina.  Beyond the world of marketing, it’s qualitative research in action.

These community meetings are often very large group sessions. Listeners will note the tie-in with the March 2018 VIEWS podcast with Missy Carvin about the World Café Technique.

And speaking of previous podcasts, be sure to check out the archives for discussions with interesting folks and a variety of topics from co-creation to becoming a master moderator.
