The art of great conversation

Screen Shot 2015-07-03 at 2.01.28 pmWhen was the last time you went to a social event without your mobile phone?

Social media, for many, is anything but social. Sometimes when I’m out in a public place I stop and look to see how many people are walking or sitting while totally engrossed in their phone, oblivious to what’s happening around them.

I was recently invited to join a group of women who have been meeting for the past 44 years.

I quickly noticed there wasn’t a mobile phone in sight. No one was updating their status. Everyone was talking.

The Ipswich & West Moreton Discussion Group was formed by Jill Steele to encourage connections and conversations among women in the region.

The group is still going strong all these years later.
