Connect the Dots is a stakeholder and community engagement firm based in Dublin and Philadelphia that brings together community and public sector partners to develop innovative and actionable solutions for our towns and cities.

We work alongside local collaborators & partners to craft insight-driven engagement processes that foster participation, build consensus, and re-imagine the future of our communities.


Our vision is to bring individuals and organizations together to co-design a better future for our cities.


This isn’t your one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter engagement process.

Here are the values that guide our work.

  • Creative: Our methods for engagement must evolve with our cities. We bring a fresh perspective that engages stakeholders, facilitating collaboration and increasing participation.
  • Inclusive: We believe in equitable engagement that allows citizens to participate in the design of their cities and spaces. We develop each engagement process in collaboration with local community stakeholders, giving everyone a seat at the table.
  • Sustainable: Complex problems require sustainable solutions. We work to find the right answer, not the right-now quick fix.
  • Insight Driven: We work with clients to clearly define success, and use data to measure long-term impacts.
