Thanks Amy,
I normally host world café amongst technical people. Next week there will be a big meeting where they will discuss about financing for health. It will be participated by banks and parliamentarians and technical people. So I am a bit nervous how it will work out. There are at least some colleagues familiar with the methodology but I am still nervous because of the diverse participants and big number also around 100.

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.

Thanks Amy for the resources provided, will definitely explore them and give comments, whenever appropriate. Have a great day ahead!

Thank you for the welcome. I'll have to spend some time getting acquainted here and I won't hesitate to contact you should I need any assistance. Take care and stay safe--
