“Recruiting a randomly selected citizens’ jury of everyday people is a more challenging task than many would think. I always ask people to think about inviting 30 friends to their house for a BBQ and how confident they are that all 30 would turn up, and all 30 would be on time. With a Citizens Jury process, that’s the standard we need to achieve – and to do so requires far more than going through the motions of emails and a few phone calls as you start out without any personal relationship like you would in the BBQ scenario! It requires preparation, a willingness to listen and an ability to create a connection while stirring a positive interest in the decision at hand. Nivek consistently excels at this task. The results speak for themselves: we can promise to government a jury of 36 people and walk in on the first day to find 36 people on time and ready to participate. When the newDemocracy Foundation needs help, my first call is to Nivek”
