Talking together in new ways can fill our lives with greater enjoyment, friendship, and learning. Please come to share YOUR experiences and insights – and join our thriving campaign to transform NYC through more and better conversations!

“Conversation is free – but it’s invaluable,” says Ron Gross, founder of Conversations New York which last year held the first Conversation Day on 42nd Street, with partners in London, Paris, and Tokyo.

Great talk deepens our humanity – and strengthens our communities. Gathering in a circle to make meaning, has empowered our species in every era and culture. We have never needed it more than today!

Ninety-minutes of the right kind of conversation can even cause people to fall in love, according to an experiment reported in the NY Times on Jan. 11th.

At this participatory event, you’ll learn how you can join the movement to turn away from our devices and towards each other – for delight, understanding, and social progress.

Ron Gross, founder of CNY, chairs the University Seminar on Innovation at Columbia University. His internationally best-selling books include The Lifelong Learner, Socrates’ Way, Peak Learning, Individualism, and The New Professionals.
