Wendy established Conversation Club in 2015. At each event, two guest speakers talk about topics we may all face in our lives. After the first guest shares the story of a challenge they have confronted, we turn to our second speaker, who has rigorous professional and academic expertise in guiding people through similar challenges. This honesty encourages us to be brave and honest as well, while empowering us with the knowledge that we can share our journey with others who can guide us forward, safely.
