    About Bird's Eye View

    • 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.

    Hi Susan, interesting post for me. I've made quite a few new friends on-line in the last year. Two are dentists wives who work in their husbands practice. We brainstorm solutions to problems, shoot the breeze or ask for opinions or support just about every day. We all have expressed our gratitude for having each other and wonder how we ever survived without each other to bounce things off of. I've also become friends with others in the dental field who I've helped or who have opened doors to opportunities for me. Of course I also value the friendships of other bloggers like yourself. Will I ever meet any of them? Maybe. Do I want to? Sort of. There is the perception that it's best to leave things as they are, but I think it would be fun to meet all of them. In my case, they are scattered all over the country so it may be a tricky proposition.
