What one thing did you most like about the Trialogue?
Everybody was free to talk, nobody was ‘forced’ to do so. Kind atmosphere.
Sarah’s role, encouraging and facilitating – listening, reflecting back, and summing up contributors thoughts.
Everyone had the opportunity to share their experiences.
Diversity of the group.
It was good that I took the opportunity to speak in public as I have to do this and it has been making me agitated.
What one thing would you like to see improved at the next Trialogue?
People not interrupting each other.
Interruptions / over speaking
Better control over the flow of conversation.
Continue encouraging people contributing respectfully one at a time.
All good! Thanks!
