We believe in the power of conversations.
And the impact they have on business.

What we do

Conversations are one of the critical pillars of business success: they are the essence of how we connect, build trust, inspire and deliver results.

Performance reviews, appraisals, career conversations or honest chats. Coaching, mentoring, feedback. In learning & development we use a lot of terms. So, to keep things simple, we just call them conversations. And we help your leaders make the most of them.

Great workplace conversations

In their words

"We worked in collaboration with The Conversation Space on a new and improved addition to our curriculum, which is all about supporting our people to have better conversations. Helen and Sara are great fun to work with, and bring lots of passion for the subject! We are still in the early stages of rollout, but so far our feedback has been very positive, with the business hoping to roll this out more widely throughout 2019. Our journey wasn’t always easy, given the changes within our landscape, and a number of competing priorities but we overcame these together and we are pleased with the end result!"

"The response from our leaders has been overwhelmingly positive, with many saying it was the most impactful learning experience they’ve ever had. Already our leaders are putting their personal learning into practice, feeding this forward to their teams and driving positive change in their business areas. "

"Working with Emily and the Conversation Space at our International Women’s Day Event provided a real clear, consistent and engaging approach and framework for our colleagues. People left feeling like they had the tools and knowledge to face into conversations they may have previously avoided. This is one step on our approach to supporting our Women of William Hill and this investment in their development was invaluable – for women and the guys! I’d definitely recommend Emily and the team at the Conversation Space to support you and your businesses in putting the human touch into conversations"

"We worked with Conversation Space to design a bespoke session which helped our participants explore the value behind the Conversational Wisdom® model in building trusted relationships with their clients. Sara and the team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. In building our session they were inquisitive, flexible and inspiring. The delivery was excellent and really focused on including the room in exploring their own definition of Conversational Wisdom® which worked for them. I would work with them again."

"We invited The Conversation Space to run an afternoon workshop for us as part of our annual Associates and Senior Associates Conference in Bristol.   We wanted this group of employees to raise the level of conversational skills they have with their clients and understand how to have conversations that build and strengthen successful client relationships.   Emily Cosgrove worked with us before the conference to really understand our expectations and aims.  The event itself was delivered in an engaging, meaningful and interactive way; successfully allowing individuals the opportunity to employ the tools and techniques taught.  As well as it also being a great networking opportunity, delegates came away more confident in their ability to have better client conversations – thank you!"
