Conscious Conversations: London ‘Taster’ Event

Our friends at Conscious Conversations are holding a ‘taster’ event – allowing people to get an idea of how better conversations can work to actively improve business performance. Further details about Conscious Conversations here.  

What do you actually do in a Conscious Conversations session? How can you help people learn how to have better conversations? What sort of impact can you have on an organisation?

These are just some of the questions we’re asked when we talk to people about our Conscious Conversations work. Maybe they’re questions you’ve asked or would like to ask!

To give some answers we’re holding a taster session on 18th September from 6.30 to 8.30pm and we’d love if you could join us. We’re only inviting a small group of people so that everyone has the opportunity to experience what a real-life Conscious Conversations session is like. We’ll allow plenty of time for questions and, as our offer is ever evolving, we’d also welcome any feedback you have.

The details of the event are:

  • 18th September 2018
  • 6.30pm – drinks and nibbles provided
  • Venue: North London (details via email).

For planning it would be really helpful if you could respond by 24th August.  Just email me: jeff @ (removing the spaces) and I’ll forward your interest on to Ingrid Allen who’s organising the event.

About GDPR

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been a long time in the making. It’s also not without its critics. But, after thousands of amendments, and years of discussion relating to its scope, the regulation was adopted on 27th April 2016 and will come into force across on 25th May, 2018.  The UK, it has been confirmed by the government, will also adopt the GDPR, prior to leaving the EU.

The GDPR is an EU regulation applying to all member countries that will ‘strengthen and unify’ data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). There are significant implications for business being GDPR-compliant.
