Hi Amy, sorry I had to step out but really appreciated the talk. Our Association is finalizing the theme of our 2018 congress and it was interesting to see how the themes that came out in yesterday's world café and the theme we are working on are aligned. Can you confirm the title and author of the poem that was shared at the start of the session. It was absolutely beautiful! Many thanks for all the work. If at some stage you are interested in doing something tied to intercultural dialogue or seeing migrations as a chance for society, I'd be happy to help. Bye for now and thanks for the opportunity to have more connections!

Any, thank you. I have not figured out World Cafe as of yet. It is a lot to navigate. I was in the Foreign Service and have served in many places. I need to figure out this site.

Hi Amy,

Thanks for the welcome, and your comments.

The format of the world cafe has been chosen by the client, and he decided for 10 tables. In fact, he uses this format and tailors to his specific needs. So it will look like a cafe, but not a 'real' one... He wants the participants (coming from several countries) to answer 2 specific questions. So even the rounds are a bit changed.
And I have to train him and one director, giving them both tips and tricks as they will facilitate with me, mainly oriented on the content itself. They need to know how to help participants the right way.
On the day before, I will host a first team building for the same teams: the relationship triangle. This will be the foundation for the world cafe.
Well an exciting experience, I have to work hard on it to make it a success.

I will keep you posted. This event will take place on Feb 14 & 15 (2 half-days).
