I have now run three Zoom Knowledge Cafés in a series on Leadership as a practice.

The first one was mainly for the European time zone and the last two for Asia Pacific.

I have a fourth Café scheduled, for the 7th May, mainly for the Americas, but the time works well for Europe and MENA too. There are still a few places remaining if you get in quickly.

All three of the Cafés so far have been heavily oversubscribed, and I plan to keep running them on the same theme until I have satisfied the demand. If you have missed out on one so far, your time will come.

The Cafés have gone remarkably well - they always do - but don't take my word for it - take a look at the two blog posts below.
A huge thanks to Dave and Carlin for these blog posts and capturing the essence of the two Cafés.

One of the many things I enjoy about running the Cafés on Zoom is the fact that I get a rich mix of people from different countries and cultures. For example, in my third Café for Asia/Pacific, I had people registered (not all showed up) from 14 countries: UK, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea, Netherlands and Tajikistan. Some of them old friends who I had not seen for years.

The Cafés are relatively easy to run, and I have helped several people/organizations start their own. Take a look here for some ideas on how to get started and how to run them on Zoom.
