Rick began as a theatre director, worked across the world building brands and now uses conversation – humanity’s oldest social platform – to unravel complexity and make sense of modernity.
Based in Toronto, his home town, Rick was resident in Tokyo for four years on an assignment that covered many Pacific economies.
About Rick’s conversations
Over the last twenty years or so, Rick’s pioneered the Kitchen Table Conversation method. A KTC is a curated conversation where people come together as equals to understand how to change a particular situation or organisation for the better.
Participants take part in a lively, productive and (of course) carefully guided discussion. Because everything’s very friendly and relaxed, they can move beyond their day-to-day work selves and bring a much wider frame of reference to bear on the problem at hand, sharing what’s most important to them in their own way and at their own pace.
And they’re there to listen as much as talk, because that’s how the best conversations work. That helps them learn and understand things they didn’t expect to, stimulating new insights, approaches and solutions as part of a natural flow of communication and engagement.
Twenty years of KTCs have helped thousands of people across the world evolve, explore and enact new ways of moving forward together. And because people find new ways of relating to each other during the KTC, they find they have better conversations long after it’s over.
