Conversational Wisdom Bespoke Programmes

We’re curious. Not sure what you want?

We’ll bespoke a programme to fit your unique needs and deliver the conversational change you want.  Our programmes raise participants’ level of conversational skill and by doing so build a more human-centered, productive, and high performing culture.  It all starts with a Thought Generation Session.

In their words

"We used The Conversation Space recently to support us in the work we are doing around Mental Health, specifically how we better enable our people to feel safe talking about mental health and to have better conversations around this increasingly important topic. We were keen to build on the work that had already been done and we found Emily to be incredibly flexible to ensure our requirements were met. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them and would definitely welcome the opportunity to work with them again."

"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 2019/20. 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."
