The World Café by Juanita Brown and David Isaacs

The world café, invented in 1995 by Juanita Brown and David Isaacs, is a large audience workshop organized as a conversation process between small groups. It is based on 7 principles: set the frame, create a safe & comfortable space, explore questions that matter, encourage everyone’s contribution, cross-pollinate & connect ideas, listen together for patterns & insights, and at last, harvest & share collective discoveries.
