Thanks to Michael Shell of GLPA, I recently discovered this video of myself sharing stories of the Japanese translation of the World Café book*, and the ongoing impact of World Café within Japan. In watching it, I was struck by how fully our Japanese friends have embraced the possibilities and potential of World Café conversation.
I’m very excited to be going to Japan (for my first time ever!) to co-host two Impact Cafés with Juanita Brown (who will be coming in by satellite) and Kazuaki Katori – one in Tokyo on October 25th, and an Asia-wide Online Impact Café on the 27th. I’ll also be co-hosting an all-day Master Class for World Café practitioners in Tokyo on October 23rd. It is a great honor to be part of these 20th anniversary celebrations in Japan. See the Impact Café Listings for more details.
- Members of the original Japanese translation team and publishers include: Daisuke Kawaguchi, Toshimitsu Kanekiyo, Kazuaki Katori, Mikako Yusa and Riichiro Oda.
