The Conversation Factory is led by Daniel Stillman, the author of Good Talk: How to Design Conversations that Matter, a handbook for leaders looking to create change.
Daniel facilitated a workshop for the team I was working on and really helped us change the way we do business. He did exactly what an innovation coach should do - teach, encourage, motivate, and get out of the way! I would recommend working with them for any group eager for change.
Thank you Daniel! The workshop you facilitated at SMASH was very powerful. I heard our attendees bringing so many of the key elements your outlined into other sessions at the summit. Creating environments for sustainable and actionable conversations is key to any organization, but in senior care it's mission critical. Your energy and intelligence made all 70 people in the room feel like you were working one on one with them...Excellent!
Daniel is someone who leads and generates results through influence and inspiration of others. He is a brilliant designer, and his approach is both collegial and inspirational. I would welcome working with Daniel in the future, and I recommend him to anyone seeking to drive breakthrough thinking in their business.
Daniel just facilitated a 90 minutes workshop on Rapid Prototyping at Swiss Re for an internal event dedicated to Innovation. He did a phenomenal job, keeping the perfect balance between knowledge sharing and hands-on activities, concepts and practical tips. Attendees were able to leave with something concrete they could do differently in their day to day job and an appetite to explore the topic further. Daniel's style is very engaging and he was able to keep our rather large group (50+) focused and interested throughout.
