Last Week’s Confab Call with Tom Atlee

Last week, we were pleased to host the first Confab Call of 2012 with our special guest Tom Atlee of the Co-Intelligence Institute.  It was a great call with nearly 100 participants, an active question and answer period and even a thoughtful “breakout” session (see the document below).

Since the call itself was long and the audio file is pretty large, we decided to offer 15 minutes of Tom’s commentary on the themes of his upcoming book separate for those looking for an update on his work.

In addition to our thanks to Tom, we would like to send a special thanks to Ben Roberts, a principal in both weDialogue and Occupy Café, for facilitating the call on the MaestroConference platform.  We also thank Jitendra Darling, co-founder of Occupy Café and founder of Core Awakening Journey, for assisting Ben on the MaestroConference platform.

Click through for the material from our conversation with Tom and don’t forget to mark our next Confab Call on your calendars!  We’ll be talking with NCDDers Tina Nabatchi and Cynthia Farrar on February 23 about their 2011 report “Bridging the Gap between Public Officials and the Public.”  (Register for the February confab here.)
