NO SMALL TALK
Authentic human connection
The Small Talk Vortex
Sofia Warren for The New York Times
Ever been invited to a social gathering of some kind?
Excited, you prepared for what was going to be a night of meeting fun, new interesting humans. 💃🏻🕺🏼
Except, that didn't happen.
The woman to your right is super judgmental and only wants to gossip 🤦♂️; the man to your left keeps on showing off his money.🙅♀️(Hello stereotypes!)
And you end up talking about things so boring, so not meaningful, you don’t even remember the conversation when you get back home. 🤷🤷♂️
No Small Talk offers the exact opposite experience of that, via a series of international dinners. 😏💥
"NST taught me to question my assumptions about people. I realised if I'd met these four people in any other normal event, I wouldn’t have felt they were the types I really wanted to become friends with. In the NST context, we opened up to each other, and I am blown away by what amazing individuals they are"
"It's an important thing for humanity to find connection with other people.
NST is so effective with this, because after a couple of hours you find true connection with people who were complete strangers"
"None of us wanted to leave"
