In June, I gave a talk on “Conversational leadership and the Power of Conversation” at the European Commission's Knowledge Week In Brussels.

You can now watch the full talk on the home page of my blook.

Note the session was 56 minutes long but I stop my talk at 26:20 to allow the audience to have a conversation and after 7 minutes I start to take questions at 33:20. Q&A lasts 23 minutes. So 50:50, about 25 minutes for my talk and 30 minutes for conversation and Q&A.

I call this a conversational talk. I wish more speakers would adopt a similar format.

In this talk, however, I wish I had given more time over to conversation and less to Q&A as I think Q&A is not really interaction and it is in the conversation where the real value lies.

Oh and I dont like lecterns either but in this case there were no lapel mikes and I was forced to stand still.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
