Conversation Facilitation & Choreography and Event Strategy

handshake

A Table In Time‘s consulting is about cultivating conversation to create connectedness, a sense of belonging and self-actualization of its participants. Thoughtful dialog engenders trust,the foundation for all relationships.  In contrast to a discordant society, A Table In Time offers a hopeful worldview and often joyful experience.

We create a framework for conversation, relaxed yet deliberate choreography, for enabling attentive interactions and discussions, in a variety of environments and unique venues. Gatherings represent a supportive eco-system of interested people wanting to maximize life/work opportunities and motivated by fresh ideas.  It’s an event when we shed agendas and instead, participate as our full selves, right here, right now.

A Table In Time is not a typical business, social or membership event discussing small talk, but rather a considered adventure for exploring topics germane to the culture that often in our techno-focused world remain unconsidered. Hearing each other’s stories strengthens relationships and vision.

Who might benefit from A Table In Time’s consulting?  Leaders who need to  strengthen  genuine relationships and build long term growth and stability based on authentic connection, cohesion and trust.   This includes meeting planners and corporate event organizers, sales managers, development professionals, membership-based associations and alumni groups, human resource departments and board chairs.

The Experience

We create a relaxed yet deliberate framework for authentic dialog over a meal or not.  Our services provide
an alternative and creative venue for addressing topics germane to participants and an organization’s culture and inherent objectives. An event’s conversational choreography is subtle, enabling attendees to thoughtfully express themselves, bond with others and feel attuned to the bigger whole. Often new conversations occur leading to solutions and broadened awareness.

How are Gatherings Curated? 

Slow Food-218Although flexible in format and customized for the venue and timing, gatherings unfold through “rounds” of conversation with specific beginnings and endings. A Table In Time designs the choreography for how to enable thoughtful interactions. Every event has a creative “menu” for enabling dialog and participation.

“Amy and A Table in Time organized a wonderful dining event for us on South Pearl Street.  Our Merchants’ Association had been doing semi-annual “Merchant Mixers” on our own for the past several years and we decided to hire Amy to help spice things up a bit and make the evening more fun and interesting for everyone.  Our expectations were met and exceeded.  Amy gently guided the conversation and choreographing of the dinner. The event was by far the best “Mixer” we’ve had over the past 10 years.  Everyone in attendance seemed to enjoy them selves very much, and, for the first time, virtually everyone participated in conversation and stuck around for the whole evening.  Many of our members commented that they couldn’t wait to do it again.” – Mark Gill, President, South Pearl Street Association
