Profile Information

Please indicate your World Café experience (ONLY IF YOU HAVE ACTUAL WORLD CAFE EXPERIENCE) in one or more of the following roles:
Host, Participant
If you are new to the World Cafe, would you please share how you heard about this community?
I first heard about TWC in 2005 with my friend Phil Howard. My understanding of TWC deepened greatly in 2008 when I met Juanita Brown, David Isaacs and Amy Lenzo.
What field is the primary focus of your World Café work (ONLY CHECK AREAS WHERE YOU ARE ALREADY ACTIVELY USING WORLD CAFE PLEASE)?
Health, Education, Corporate, Online, Community
What knowledge, skills or resources would you like to contribute to the World Café community to help it grow and flourish?
I am a facilitator, host, and conversational leader, convening strategic gatherings of all shapes and sizes. I work primarily with educational and public-benefit organizations for building social and intellectual capital, project design, management, implementation and evaluation. In essence, I work with 'organizations as organisms' to make the processes of co-creation and co-evolution easy and graceful. My work with groups includes hosting The World Cafe and facilitating Open Space Technology events as ways to make our collective intelligence visible, discover creative breakthrough thinking, cultivate self-awareness, create strong interpersonal relationships and a deep sense of team work. I develop meetings, conferences and retreats using TWC, OST, and other methods in collaboration with non-profit and corporate clients. In particular I am most excited about Multi-Generational Collaboration, and Cross-Boundary dialogue.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
Friendship, collaboration, and co-learning. I'd also love to receive invitations for your events!
Would you like to share a Web or Blog address?
