Dear Avril,

My name is Pieter Ploeg, a junior Art of Hosting practitioner and emerging social innovator. I have just graduated from a social entrepreneurship training in Sweden (http://www.yip.se) and I am now finding my way into the world through the exchange of ideas and skills. I have started a small social enterprise to sustain myself during social innovation work, while travelling and learning. (http://www.pietradelmundo.nl)

In early October I am moving to Vancouver for a few months, to discover North America and the networks in and around Vancouver.
Right now I sustain myself with making websites, but I am looking forward to doing more hosting and community work.

I would be very grateful if you could help me to connect to the World Café or Art of Hosting community in Vancouver area, to see if there are ways of collaborating!

With kind regards,

Pieter Ploeg

Yes, dear Avril....I look forward to seeing you when we're in Vancouver. And I'll be seeing Charles in the Bay Area in late June so will have a better sense of what's unfolding there.
Warmly,

Yes! Welcome, Avril. Whenever I think of you I think of your lovely "Etiquette" Poster, which we have used so often. I'm going to put it in the "hosting resources" part of this site (with credit of course!).
