You said you'd been part of "a virtual leadership meeting with 80 global leaders spread across the world" with the "worldcafe process at the core of the event"! Well, yeah! I would definitely describe this as an online cafe! :-) I'd love to hear more about it and what made it work so well from your point of view...

An of course yes. I went to your workshop. And dinner. Wonderful to connect with you. Are you going to be states side in November? Would love to reconnect. Take care and I wish you the best.

A warm welcome to you, An! I'd love to have a conversation with you about virtual World Cafes as that is one of my own passions - bringing true connection and depth to our interactions in the online environment. You may be interested in joining my group World Cafe Online? You'd be very welcome.

Hi An,

Hamburg is close but not THAT close! Next time you are in southern Germany, let me know. Perhaps we can arrange to meet.

Designing, hosting and harvesting the results of a World Café is somewhat like learning an instrument or a foreign language. The more you practice, the better you get!

You may want to take a look at the video documentation which World Café Europe has been making of its work in different European countries. We made them so that we could share our experiences and hopefully inspire others with their work. You can access the videos on YouTube. Here's the link: Take a look at some of them and let me know what you think!

I look forward to our conversations about your experiences -perhaps you's be interested to coming to the World Café event being held in conjunction with a Global Leadership Conference in Prague in November?

Greetings from the City of the Oktoberfest,
Pat Munro

We are happy to see you’ve joined our growing online community. If you’d like to join our European Salon to explore the topic: “Dialogue & Leadership: The New Face of Community?” we’d certainly be pleased to have you.

We’ll be meeting from Oct. 16 to 19 at Hotel Marienhof, Reichenau an der Rax, about an hour south west of Vienna. See:

We’ve succeeded in holding the costs lower for those who sign up by the 25th of August. To see more, please visit

If you have any questions, please get back to me.
Over a cup of steaming coffee,
