Trigger Training - The Conversations You Crave
Do you find yourself having the same conversation over and over with different people?
If your conversations were a landscape, what would they look like? How wide would they be? How deep? How many interesting objects would be in them?
Good conversations are the playground we often get to just by accident. Rather than stumbling your way into one, and often away from one, wouldn’t you rather walk toward a good conversation on purpose and with confidence?
This half day workshop will help you develop the mindset and tools you need to create conversations that are deep, playful, and creative. If you are frustrated with small talk, are bursting to express more of yourself, and you want to feel energised from talking to other fellow humans, then this course is for you.
This event is for you if
You’re curious about other people’s stories and experiences
You’re addicted to conversations and connecting with others
You’re interested in deep conversation, and realise that small talk is only a tool to get you there
You love community and want to get to know the other #TriggerTribers
You’re a doer - you want to actually get out there and apply knowledge to your everyday life
You want to grow a social circle in all areas of your life
You want to learn about to manage the feelings and thoughts that affect the way we relate to others
You’re keen to talk to strangers but don’t want to come across weird, boring or unmemorable
Why You Should Attend
A rich life is a connected one. It’s about the people we meet, the conversations we have and the experiences we share together. Social nourishment is a need, not a nice to have.
Connecting is the prerequisite for forming friendships, romantic relationships, discover or create business opportunities.
And every relationship starts with a single conversation.
You’ll learn about, experiment and practice with the conversational tools in a friendly and relaxed environment so that you can get out there and practice as soon as you leave the workshop.
HOW IT WORKS
The workshop is split into 30 minute sections, with a break after 1.5hours to give you a chance to grab a cup of tea, biscuit / piece of fruit (depends if you resolutions are still going…) and a chat.
See the FAQs below for exact timings.
What you can expect to learn
Mindset - Understand what your current limiting and empowering beliefs are so that you can develop the mindset you need to have great conversations all the time.
Listening - How to be authentically present and hold the space for others to feel truly heard and seen.
Going Deep - How to pick your questions so that conversations can become deep and meaningful quickly.
Going non-linear - How to be creative and playful so that you can jump into new tangents of conversation whenever you want to.
We want to go deep into each topic, so we’ve limited this workshop to only 15 people.
Who are the leaders?
Georgie is addicted to deep conversations, authentic connection and learning: ideally all at once. Bored and frustrated with small talk ( ‘what do you do?’) as a Project Manager, she founded Trigger Conversations in 2016. To date, Trigger has run 40 events, brought together 1000 humans to have 3600+ meaningful conversations.
Every relationship starts with a conversation. And Georgie is fascinated with how we can engineer real conversations that allow you to express your whole self, feel truly nourished, connected and provoke new discovery about yourself, others and the world.
An intellectual enthusiast with a passion for understanding human behaviour, she has degrees in Philosophy, Applied Psychology and Linguistics, is training for a diploma in Transformational Life Coaching and has undertaken extensive learning in the emotional intelligence field. She loves to ask questions, be a beginner and read across a number of disciplines.
Her insatiable curiosity led her to daily experiments talking to strangers in London. She discovered interesting patterns in her interactions and is excited to share the tools, mindset and confidence to do this with anyone, everywhere at TEDx in May.
Whilst steering the Trigger ship, she is also a life coach, philosophy facilitator in schools, a trainer and more!
Current addictions: Learning Brazilian Zouk dancing, learning (generally), conversation (obviously!), reading and adventures that involve moving your body. Georgie loves always being on the edge, experimenting with her beliefs, preferences and creative abilities.
Her superpowers include: Talking to strangers everywhere, deep listening, asking questions, walking up escalators really quickly and a disarming smile. :-D
