Roshan named his practice Bliss Collaborations because collaboration – literally, “co-laboring” or “working together” – is at the center of his philosophy as a consultant.
As epitomized in this well-known quote from the world of social movements, Roshan isn’t looking to “waste your time” by merely offering help, but rather he seeks to work together with people and organizations whose goals, values, and vision for the future are bound up with his own. That’s why he thinks in terms of having “Collaborators” rather than “Clients.”
Below are some of the ways Roshan most often engages with Collaborators, but there are many other ways we can work together. You can schedule a free 30 minute consultation with Roshan to talk about how you’d like to collaborate by clicking here.
Inclusive, high quality facilitation for professional meetings, group retreats, and public events, as well as decision-making & conflict resolution processes.
Custom designed educational sessions that help teams learn new concepts and apply new skills in areas like community organizing, anti-oppression, youth engagement, consensus decision-making, legislative advocacy, and more.
Collaborate with Roshan 1-1 or in small project groups to get the extra support you need design a new effort, be authentic to your values, or stay accountable to your plan through regular check ins where you have the insights of an experienced change maker on tap.
Engaging, challenging, and inspiring talks for your event, class, or organization on subjects like transforming the criminal legal system, participatory democracy, social change, generational theory, and more.
Because of his broad range of experience, Roshan’s expertise spans a variety of skills and content areas. But if you ask him, he is most in his element and has the greatest depth when training or practicing in the following areas:
I attended a Jefferson County student-administration forum and was very impressed with the moderator Roshan Bliss. There was a very diverse group of panelists with opposing views. Roshan did a great job of keeping the discussion moving and sticking to the schedule, making sure that all participants got equal time, and also thinking on his feet with some good questions to stimulate discussion.
