Since 1992 Mr. Saslow has been a subject matter expertise regarding policy, the design of collaborative processes and facilitation of multi-stakeholder dialogue.

Mr. Saslow well understands the interactions between the sectors and the principle of interest based negotiation.  He prides himself on creating “safe spaces” for people to make their own best decisions.  He has led workshops, public meetings, public hearings and large scale, long term policy dialogue.
