Being Wise Together

By Frans Nijs and Anita Sheehan

Brussels: 28 October 2015

Have you ever struggled with a question that was yours to solve, but which that affected more than just yourself? Try as you might, you could not come up with a satisfactory answer?

We have all been there at some point, but there is hope, because one way of working through such questions, when you find yourself unable to go it alone, is to create an environment where you can draw from the experience and the wisdom of a larger group. One such tried and tested way is a technique called the “World Café”.

Of course, the best way to understand the World Café concept is to experience it. So, we've set it up for you! Frans Nijs and Anita Sheehan will guide you through the World Café approach and help you uncover the mysteries of how to integrate the insights of people from various backgrounds and cultures to create a better world to live in.

You are invited to learn about this collective intelligence method and to discover “the Magic in the Middle.”

About Frans

Frans Nijs is a practitioner of the Art of Hosting, writer, philosopher, cyclist and civil servant (not necessarily in this order of importance).

About Anita

Anita likes nothing better than bringing out the best in individuals and organizations. In her experience, collective intelligence practices, including the World Café, are excellent tools to ensure that people are fully engaged in the dynamics of an organization and thus happier to contribute with all their talents, capacities and passion.
