Third Way Consulting designs and delivers training programs and public consultation solutions that address the most pressing problem faced by municipalities: How to engage with and serve an increasingly divided public in a way that meets the needs of all stakeholders.

Jason Allen has been helping public transit, municipal, and sustainable transportation employees learn the information they need to know for over a decade, offering concise, engaging training courses grounded in expertise and built on a solid understanding of Adult Learning principles.

Described by former colleagues and participants as “an exceptional trainer,” “a gifted communicator” and an “innovative thought partner” Jason has the skills and experience to take complex subjects and distill them into engaging, easy to understand training courses that stick in participants minds long after they have left the classroom or stepped away from their computer.

Jason has also taken these adult learning principles and extended them into the public consultation sphere. In a world where the public increasingly feels like there is a disconnect between themselves and the decision making process, Jason uses the tools unique to Adult Learning facilitation to create a robust two way conversation between municipalities and stakeholders.
