With the launch of our new website on June 1st, World Café Services moved into high gear with a flurry of inquiries from all directions!
During the month of June and July, I enjoyed many conversations with people from a variety of public and private sectors: education, energy, forestry, sustainability, entrepreneurship, immigration, climate change and health.
What is so encouraging for me about World Café Services is being on the frontlines of the World Café world hearing about the diverse communities and businesses who are curious about The World Café – not just as a method or process but as a practice and way of being in all our communications – and are wanting or are already implementing an approach of “learning together through inquiry” in life and work today.
World Café Services, through our professional network, is serving community and business clients everywhere– whether that’s by having a half hour conversation with myself and others looking at the possibilities of convening very small or very large groups in a new way or exploring ways to renew or deepen the conversations they’ve been hosting internally within their organizations.
One of my favorite stories from this month’s World Café Services work is helping an organizing team for a conference in Arusha, Tanzania to find some guidance and support to co-create their World Café design.
