Geoff trained with David Gurteen and together they ran a master class in Knowledge Cafes. If you have an occasion when you want to have people engage in real conversations Geoff would be happy to assist. He uses this method regularly and while most cafes have between 8 and 30 participants he has used the methodology effectively at a conference of 180. Imagine not having to listen to the interminable questions fired at keynote speakers (yawn) and instead being able to have a small group conversations about what you have just heard - learning at its best.
