Dan Butt

Dan supports mission-driven organizations to envision and realize their potential for impact.

As a service designer, strategist and social impact innovator, Dan works with partners to co-create actionable strategies and bring ideas to life for sustained impact. Dan recently founded Reciprocal, a strategic design and innovation collective that supports mission-driven organizations to envision and realize their potential to enable the transition to a more just and regenerative future. Building on years of on-the-ground experience working closely with partners and people with lived experience, he has supported his partners to bring circularity to food waste and accessibility to healthcare. In deep collaboration with his partners, his work has led to critical mindset shifts, locally impactful solutions and nationally scaled tools. Dan employs a mix of human-centred, participatory, regenerative, systemic and foresight methods to define strategic opportunities, co-design interventions, and operationalize value for his stakeholders.
