In a world where people are so divided, what does it mean to have meaningful, thoughtful conversations? And is it even possible? If you asked today’s guest, Fred Dust, author of Making Conversation: Seven Essential Elements of Meaningful Communication, the quick answer would be a resounding yes.  However, we often lack the tools we need to communicate effectively. In today’s episode of Biophilic Solutions, we’ll look at the state of conversation today, explore the concept of conversational communities, and of course, we’ll discuss how nature provides the best backdrop for thoughtful communication.


Fred Dust will be the keynote speaker at the 2023 Biophilic Leadership Summit, April 23-26 in Serenbe. A former Senior Partner and Global Managing Director for acclaimed design firm IDEO, Fred Dust works at the intersection of business, society and creativity. Most recently, he has been investigating new ways to ignite constructive dialogue in a climate of widespread polarization, cynicism and disruption. His keynote address will center on creating meaningful dialogue about biophilic principles.⁠
