Why do it

Organisations are built on conversations and the way we communicate in the workplace is changing – be more human.

It is through the power of conversation that organisations can truly transform – one conversation at a time.

With many more of us working from home for the foreseeable future, how are you equipping yourself and your people to have brilliant conversations?

Conversations that build a human connection.  Conversations where people feel engaged.  Conversations that create a space for collaboration and interaction.  And conversations that deepen trust.

Our Speaker Sessions inspire participants to explore a different kind of conversation.

A conversation that drives connection, brings joy, grows courage – a conversation that is more human.

In their words...

"Emily Cosgrove from The Conversation Space delivered a speaker session exploring what it means to be more human at work and the art of conversation. It was excellent and thought-provoking, the tone and message were spot on. People have a real desire to hear this and the feedback was really positive, particularly around the content/concept of Conversational Wisdom®."
