Don’t miss this opportunity
Peter Garrett is a pioneer in the field of Dialogue, having initiated a worldwide movement back in 1984 with David Bohm. He founded the international consulting firm Dialogue Associates in 2003 and, in collaboration with his business partner Jane Ball and close business colleagues from Europe and North America, he founded the international Academy of Professional Dialogue in 2015.
This is an exciting opportunity both for those already using dialogue in their work, and for anyone who would like to learn more about this way of working to be with Peter and to benefit from his experience.
He will share aspects of his 35-year journey with Dialogue, his close friendship with highly respected physicist David Bohm in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, his work in a variety of environments including international corporate business, maximum security prisons and political forums related to the United Nations.
What we plan to do...

- Key concepts in developing your dialogic practice
- The four core Dialogic Practices explored and expanded
