Date: Monday 2nd July 2012 6:00pm - 9:00pm. This is a free event. Please arrive at 6:00pm or shortly after, which will give you time to settle in and meet other people. Refreshments will be available. The cafe itself will start prompt at 6:30pm.

Theme: Do you consciously align your behavioural environment with the purpose of your conversations?

We will use fun metaphor character cards to stimulate interactive conversations and explore how aligning the behavioural environment impacts outcomes. Different contexts will be reflected on to highlight the range of perspectives participants have. These exercises will demonstrate the synergies between intentional behaviour, conversation, metaphor and reflective practice.

Speaker: Arthur Shelley

Arthur is the author of two books on knowledge leadership and behaviour, an award winning educator and a business leadership consultant. Formerly the Global Knowledge Director of Cadbury Schweppes, he developed virtual communities of practice that created significant tangible & intangible value for individuals, teams and the wider organisation.
