Public Service Conversations Caf&#233

I’ve just posted this over at Public Service Conversations:

I’m really pleased and excited to be able to announce that the Public Service Conversations café sessions are going to begin at the end of May.

Sessions will be held every other Wednesday at 10.30am and last for an hour and a half. The venues will vary, but at least for now they will be within Central London. Each session will have a maximum of 8 participants but there are no other requirements on you – to be able to attend you need only have an interest in public services in the UK and have a willingness to participate in a conversation with people who are similarly inclined.

The conversation in the session will be recorded (audio-only, no need for extra make-up) and a copy of the recording will be made available for download here (but if everyone waits to see what the recording is like before booking a place, then no-one will come to the first session!) Coffee, Tea and Water will be served.

The first session is on Wednesday 25th May 2005. If you’d like to come along, please send an e-mail to or leave a comment here and someone will get in touch with you. These sessions are available at a special introductory price of £75 + VAT (payment is possible by cheque or by invoice).

We are also taking bookings for four more Wednesday sessions during June and July:

8th June
22nd June
6th July
20th July

We’ll deal with August when we come to it!

The venue for the first session is yet to be fully confirmed but is likely to be in London W1 or SW1. As soon as details are available, they’ll be publicised on this site.

Remember places are strictly limited so book soon to make sure you’re part of the conversation.

  1. you want people to pay £75 to come talk about public services? its a dull enough subject as it is let alone having to pay to have a coffee & chat about it.

    dont you think youd do better to make it free?

  2. I’ll take that as a “No” then Will.

    Making it free is a nice way of saying, pay for it yourself, Lloyd – no, I don’t think I’d do better that way – I’m offering a service that you don’t seem to want to pay for – that’s cool, don’t come.

  3. i just find it a bit strange thats all, there are so many discussion fora surrounding our public services at the current time that it makes me a little aghast sometimes 🙂 i wish you the best of luck with your endeavours and hope you can produce some sort of a result that could have a meaningful impact on our public services in some respect. quite how i will wait & see…
    and by the way it does seem as though every bugger has an ipod on the tube hey?
