A brief but meaningful conversation turned into a decade of friendship and the idea for Convers(ate).
Convers(ate) is the result of a brief but meaningful conversation. Over a decade ago, creators Taylor Buonocore Guthrie and Mollie Kinsman Khine met, and have been friends ever since.
Both passionate about the art of asking questions, building relationships and facilitating groups, we individually hosted over 40 conversation-focused events with 500+ participants around the world before joining forces to create Convers(ate). We believe in gathering with purpose and that something magic happens when we put our phones down, embrace our curiosity and share a conversation.
Convers(ate) launched on Kickstarter in October 2017. We exceeded our funding goal by more than double, thanks to backers across the world who believe in the power of meaningful conversation.
We continue to facilitate a variety of events for businesses, community groups, non-profit organizations. Learn more here.
