Georgie Nightingall: Trigger Conversations
Georgie Nightingall was fed up: fed up with small talk, and fed up of waiting for her next meaningful encounter to appear out of thin air. So she founded Trigger Conversations, which runs playful events and training to help people have more meaningful conversations in their everyday lives. She’s a TEDx speaker with multiple degrees in Philosophy, Applied Psychology and Linguistics, and is constantly learning more about the field of emotional intelligence and human interaction.These days, she’s something of an expert in the art of talking to strangers – an activity she’s turned into a daily practice. She and I discussed conversational scripts, the impact of technology on our ability to relate, how to start a conversation with a stranger without seeming like a weirdo, and how she’s learned to feel belonging no matter where she goes or who she’s with.Find out more about Trigger Conversations here

Lisa Daron: The Connection Cure
Can being lonely make you sick? And if so, can tiny moments of meaningful connection help you heal? Lisa Daron is the founder of The Connection Cure; a cross-country human engagement project exploring face-to-face connection as a catalyst for healing and wellness. Road tripping to every state in America, Lisa hosts workshops that ignite the spirit, create conversation around the body, and aim to de-stigmatise loneliness in our increasingly disconnected society. We talked about grief and belonging in Swaziland at the height of the HIV / AIDS epidemic, the unexpected beauty of loneliness, the biochemical impact of a smile from a stranger, and a pirate named Skip.
