Heritage Consulting Inc.'s Downtown Revitalization Experience

Heritage Consulting has developed a wide range of interactive and engaging workshops and training programs for our commercial district revitalization and Main Street clients. In the past 12 years, we have consulted with organizations and government agencies on many issues to make organizations more effective. Listed below are workshops and consultations we have developed for clients.

Our workshops and training programs can be as detailed as you wish: from one hour to a full day in length. We are happy to develop training programs or consultations on other topics to suit your needs. Downtown management organizations, whether using the Main Street Four-Point Approach™ or another organizing methodology, struggle to grow and thrive. We know because we have worked with more than 150 downtown organizations in the last twelve years to advance their agendas and make a difference in their community. At its heart, downtown organizations are the people who volunteer or manage these critical enterprises and our training programs are designed specifically for them.

Our 60 workshops are excellent for statewide or regional conferences, group training or local downtown management organizations. Our workshops are hands-on, engaging and fun. We include several hands-on learning experiences during each workshop, and offer stories from our experiences, and practical solutions that can be used immediately. We prefer to offer peer learning opportunities during these workshops so that the audience can learn from their contemporaries as well as from Ms. Harris. We provide an extensive packet of information for each workshop participant that includes a bibliography, articles, checklists and forms as resources to reinforce the content of the workshop. We ask all participants to evaluate every one of our workshops so we can include continuous improvement in our sessions. See the list of the 60 workshops we offer for downtown clients here.  A list of our consultations for downtown clients can be found here.
