Cape Town: World Cafe conversations

Join SUGSA Cape Town on 6 October when we have World Cafe conversations.

When: 6 October 2011, 6:00PM

Topic: World Cafe conversations

Sign up: Please sign up here in order to help us with catering.

Venue:
Allan Gray Portswood office in the Presentation Room on the third floor. You can download a map here. Everyone parking in the Portswood parking area will have to pay for their own parking tickets. There is also parking available in Beach Road.

Synopsis:
One of the most effective ways to think beyond the boundaries of one’s own frame of reference is the input of others. World Cafe as a facilitation technique and catalyst for drawing from other people’s experience and opinions is true to our most fundamental form of communication: conversations.

The session will be highly interactive and probably leave you feeling a bit exhausted… But hey, no-one ever said that exhilarating discussion and loads of fun must be easy!

Outcome:
The main outcome of the evening will be that you, as a participant in the World Cafe process, will be able to facilitate a World Cafe at your workplace, in your community or at any gathering of people with a specific issue to resolve.
A secondary outcome will be that we, as the Scrum User Group, will deepen our purpose and direction.

Facilitator:
Alwyn van Wyk and a graphic recorder/cartoonist
