The story so far...

We wrote The Talking Revolution in 2018 out of frustration at the many domestic, professional and societal problems that are caused by people failing to engage with each other positively – or at all.

It outlines how we can talk and listen to each other more effectively using an approach called creative conversation. We are convinced that this is an effective way to help overcome what divides us and, together, tackle our shared challenges. 

Soon after publication we were invited to talk about the book on BBC Radio's Word of Mouth and since then have been working with organisations large and small – increasingly online – to put our ideas into practice.  

But always in our hearts has been our desire to help create change by making creative conversation accessible to everyon, which is why we've set up this not-for-profit platform – The Centre for Creative Conversation (TC3). And why we're here now, reaching out to you.

Will you join us?
