National Conversation Week 2019 is all about the simple, pleasurable and rewarding pastime of simply talking to each other.
We’re very much a society that’s “always on” and, unfortunately, the art of human conversation is getting drowned in a sea of emojis, swiping right (ask your single friends), chat bots and dwindling attention spans.
Whether it’s keeping in touch with friends or updating a colleague at work, most of us are guilty of hiding behind a screen to send a quick text, fire off an email, post a social media message or search on line rather than taking the time to actually speak with somebody.
That’s why we’re encouraging everyone in the UK to spend the week trying a little bit harder to engage with those around them be they a friend, family member, colleague or customer.
We’re not asking you to throw away your phone and we’re not trying to send the UK back to the 90s (although arguably the music was better!).
We simply want everyone to talk more
