A few months back, I met up with Peter Osborn and Eddie Canfor-Dumas, the authors of a fascinating new book called the Talking Revolution: How creative conversation can change the world.
I was introduced to them by an old friend Adrian Hosford who used to work for BT and was the creator of such wonderful advertisements extolling the virtues of talking as in this BT ad with Stephen Hawking Speech has allowed human beings to work together to build the impossible made in 1994.
You will find a few more of Adrian's "It's good to talk" ads starring the likes of Maureen Lipman and Bob Hoskins here.
More recently, Eddie and Peter have created an online forum The Talking Revolution for discussing the importance of conversation and the need for a "talking revolution".
The forum is based on Mighty Networks - a rather neat platform for hosting online discussions. It can also be conveniently accessed through iOS and Android apps.
It's early days yet but I think the forum has the makings of a great platform for discussing what they call the The Talking Revolution and I call Conversational Leadership and nicely complements my own Conversational Leadership forum on LinkedIn.
Go take a look and sign-up if you wish.
