How exciting to be coordinating the growth of a Russian group of people interested in the World Café. I know that Russia is a big country but my experience has suggested that face-to-face meetings are important to initiate the process. I'll be happy to share my insights about my experiences in s similar process here in Western Europe.
You asked for details about the series of events in Prague next month. Since you are interested in business, you might be interested to come to the Café Community Forum on 10 Nov. to hear the presntation from a for-profit company which used the World Café to improve its supplier relations. We'll also be holding a World Café with the Business Leaders Forum about Corporate Social Responsibility which provides another perspective of the use of the World Café in the business world.
Let me know if your schedule will you permit to come to Prague. I'll be happy to send you the links for further information.
I look forward to hearing about the development of your network.
Now I am the one who is slow in responding! I was travelling last week and all my e-mails piled up.
I have tried to learn Russian but it is a difficult language to master. So I hope that you don't mind that we converse in English!
What is your interest and experience with the World Café?
Are you interested in Leadership?
You may be interested to know that World Cafe Europe is cooperating with the International Leadership Association next month at their Global Leadership Conference which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
