World Café Signature Learning Programs

We have now scheduled our next set of Level One World Café Signature Learning Programs!

We will be offering these learning programs in three two-hour sessions online – one in January 2011, and one in February 2012.

Each one is timed to be convenient and accessible to people in different parts of our international community, so you can choose the one that works best for you.

January 2012
Level One Online – The Americas & Asia/Australia

Offered online in three two-hour sessions
January 6th, 9th, and 11th
(in Asia/Australia that is Jan 7th, 10th, & 12th)
5pm – 7pm Pacific Time

February 2012
Level One Online – The Americas & Europe

Offered online in three two-hour sessions
February 15th, 17th, and 19th
8am – 10am Pacific Time

We call them Learning Programs rather than trainings, because while you will come out of the series (Levels One to Three) well grounded in the art and craft of hosting World Café, the process is one of collaborative learning rather than pedagogical instruction. Interactive and experiential, these programs are held in an atmosphere of shared inquiry and mutual support.

Start your own “learning journey” into the magic of the World Café by registering for one of these introductory Level One events now!

Level One is a pre-requisite for the Level Two Signature Learning Programs, so you’ll want to take one of these currently-scheduled programs to prepare for our Level Two course being offered online in May 2012 in collaboration with Fielding Graduate University.

World Cafe and MaestroMonth

old fashioned telephone
What’s easier than picking up the phone to connect and get people talking to each other?

Nothing, right?! Well, what if we could meet for a World Cafe on the phone –
break out into small groups with touch of a button and then come back to the large group to share the highlights and harvest our conversations? What if we could experience the intimacy and collective excitement of a face-to-face World Cafe, on the phone?

Well, now we can!

Amy Lenzo, Christine Whitney Sanchez and Gabriel Shirley are hosting a special series featuring interactive events from Juanita Brown & Nicole Boyer, David Isaacs, Christina Whitney Sanchez, David Copperrider, Diana Whitney and Harrison Owen. This series, called Beyond Facilitation: Accessing Collective Wisdom,
is one week of October’s MaestroMonth, which launches MaestroConference, the company behind this revolutionary new phone-based interactive technology.


These 5 events, like all the events in MaestroMonth are FREE. Most of them start at 9am and go through to 11am. For more information about each event and/or to register, go to, scroll down to the event you’re interested in and then click the “Details” or “Register” button beneath each one. It’s that simple.
