Welcome to the Academy of Professional Dialogue, an international non-profit charity, developing Professional Dialogue in service of the wellbeing of society

About the Academy

Dialogue is a generative form of group conversation designed to dissolve fragmentation in collective and individual awareness and understanding, and to encourage coherent participation.

The Academy aims to:

  • Inspire people to transform organisations and communities through Dialogue
  • Acknowledge those who are engaged in effective Professional Dialogue work
  • Support people who want to learn how to practice Dialogue
  • Develop the breadth and depth of the whole field of Professional Dialogue
