Every Friday from midday The Steps, our mini amphitheatre, is filled with social change conversations.
These conversations provide a weekly opportunity to share inspiring ideas for change, to celebrate a social change project making an impact, or to share learning and expertise on how to make change.
You're welcome to drop in, order some lunch and #JoinTheConversation. Stay all afternoon or just drop in for a while as you enjoy your lunchbreak, it's up to you.
If you've got something to share - a challenge, an idea, some learnings - please get in touch with a short description, the date you'd like to speak and the format of your talk. You've got up to 50 minutes to engage the audience, gain useful insights or gather collaborators around your project. Please note, after a brief pause, Friday Conversations resumes on Friday 29 November. Talks for winter 2019 - 20 are being programmed now, with details to be confirmed late-November.
Please see below for information about some of the previous conversations, and find some useful speaker notes here.
