Sneak Preview: I just finished the website for a new business I'm starting in association with the World Cafe and my partner Ben Roberts. It's called weDialogue and it's a virtual event hosting and consulting service with the capacity to engage up to 2,000 people at a time. As part of our offical launch early next year we're planning to host a series of free public World Cafe conversations on key 21C issues. Look for an announcement of dates, topics and our "conversation starters" (thanks to Heartland Circle for this term) soon.
Ben and I have already been hosting some fabulous weDialogue online events - yesterday we hosted a FourYearsGo training session with Lynne Twist, and a few weeks ago I had the priviledge of supporting a call for President Obama and one of his regional consituencies. This work builds on the sucessful online World Cafes I've been hosting for the last 2-3 years, and I'm excited to see where it will go.
