You will be familiar with TED Talks, where people talk at you, but now you can take part in or host TED Circles. It's about time, we had less "talking at" and more "talking together".
TED Circles is an open platform of small groups that meet for conversations about ideas.

Hosted by volunteers, these weekly or monthly gatherings empower us to dream and debate. Each TED Circle is unique and all are virtually connected through the TED Circles platform - making it possible for local conversations to reach a global scale.

Anyone can host a TED Circle! Volunteers are required to register as a host and list each gathering. Once registered, you receive host resources, gain the ability to list the date and location of your Circles, and join a growing global community of TED Circle hosts.

But I'd love to see more conversational talks.

If you are giving a talk/presentation in an internal meeting or at a conference, it is easy to allow time for the audience to engage in a little conversation.

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
