Global ToP Taipei Report, August 2009


Text Block:
Four hundred ToP practitioners were invited to attend the Taipei meeting.  Eleven attended and another 15 provided input. By January 2010 we hope to move into implementation based on your feedback.  Please give us your thoughts on the outcomes of the meeting. Alternatively you can provide and edit your ideas at http://top-facilitators.com/mediawiki (the technology is a little more challenging on the wiki)
We will provide this to other upcoming ToP gatherings in Barcelona, USA and other locations. We are consciously trying to provide a venue for conversations on global perspectives on ToP. You can download full reports on the meeting at http://facilitator.cc.
With respect, Kevin Balm (Australia), David Buwalda (Singapore), Ann and John Epps (Malaysia), Larry and Evelyn Philbrook (Taiwan), Mark Pixley (China), Bill Staples (Canada), Sunny Walker (USA), Gail and Dick West (Taiwan).
