Hi Amy,

Thank you for your Friend request: I'm new to World Cafe, and I'll do some more exploring in the coming week.  All recommendations welcome!

Dear Amy, 

Thank you for the warm welcome. It is really good news that World Cafe at University level is also an interest of others at the community. It will be great to share experiences and co-create with this worldwide community! 

Kind regards,

Thank you very much for your warm welcome. I will be in the Anatolian Learning Cafe as well. It is my pleasure to be in this distinguished community.

Thank you for your warm welcome. A group of us are hoping to host a World Cafe in Philadelphia in 2017 on the topic around our aging world and ageism.  We have much planning to do.  I am very excited to learning how to create this learning community.

Hi. Looking forward also to see typos before I post :-)

Of course I look forward to my FIRST session, not the firts...

Hi Amy

yeah, really looking forward to may firts session. Finally I'm entering waters where my soft skills are hopefully rated more important than fact beating and revenue praising :-)
