  • Hello…

    From global dialogues engaging thousands, to tete-a tetes, to everything in between, I’ve got the greatest gig in the world: I get paid to engage the world’s greatest business and thought leaders in conversation. Significant conversation. I do a lot of other stuff, too, but basically I’m obsessed with conversation.

    I’ve been asked to share my views on the power of conversation—especially as it’s exemplified in word of mouth marketing techniques. My preference is the gold standard of conversation” the kind of face to face, one-on-one dialogue that’s getting increasingly rare.

    If you think about it, face to face conversation is the new luxury.

    It’s so easy to “communicate” through technology-assisted means that some of us have trouble remembering the last truly fascinating, life-changing conversation we’ve had.

    So there’s something a bit weird about my writing a blog about the most memorable conversations I’ve had. But I’m doing it to stir your appetite for significant conversation. We’ll share some of the remarkable conversations I’ve been privileged to have with people all over the world. Some are extraordinary leaders in business and public life; others just ordinary folks with extraordinary things to say. And I’ll throw in some conversational tips along the way, as well as comments from other people on the subject of talk, conversation…even just plain gab.

    Whichever way you like it, I hope you’ll find inspiration here to go off and have a scintillating conversation of your own.

    I’ll give you recommendations for initiating meaningful conversation as well as for places and activities that are worth talking about. Let me know what you find especially provocative or fascinating or enlightening or all the above. And, of course, tell me if any of this is wrong-headed, stupid, arbitrary or, worst of all, boring.

It sounds like NYC is the perfect city for you!! I'm glad you're having such a wonderful time living there, but I am saddened that you will have to go back to Germany eventually. Would you consider moving to the US permanently? I think it is very important to live somewhere where you feel accepted and feel like you are part of a community. :)

I love these photos of the city as well. They are so gorgeous! I have only been to NYC once (1998) and I long to go again. This post definitely makes me anxious to visit there soon! xo

It's too funny and coincidental that you are a German in NYC. I'm going to Germany in about 10 days and nervous as hell. I lived in Russia for a lot of years, and am so nervous Germany will be similar which is not a good thing :( But oh well now I have someone to write to, if you don't mind. Enjoy NYC I will be there next week and a lot of what you said in your post reminds me of how I first felt when I was there for the first time!!! I wish I could bring those feelings back....
