the work of changing the world

begins when we work together

We all yearn for transformation. It is in our DNA, always driving us forward. I believe that when we discover our unique role in the work of changing the world, we also find hope; an infectious force that makes what once seemed impossible, possible. History teaches that with hope, and the tools to work together, just about any group of people can change the world. 

I partner with individuals and organizations dedicated to people and the planet: in education, community development, technology and innovative ventures. Together, we craft and deploy strategies that integrate human-centered design, social technologies and campaign logic. Join us.

URBAN RE:VISION

I had the pleasure of working with Ian on the Board of Directors at Urban Re:Vision in which I found him to be extremely reliable, available, professional, flexible, and innovative.

Ian is genuinely committed to doing work that enhances the greater good. I highly recommend this rare and wonderful individual.

BARRETT VALUES CENTER

Ian Bryan has the ability to create strategy and understanding based on big picture views and then bring that down to practical action and follow through. Even when things don't go exactly to plan, Ian faces up to the reality to get things back on track. He is a visionary, professional, fun to be with has a huge heart. His slightly sideways look at the world breaks down stuck patterns in people and organisations and unlocks new possibilities.
