Why a podcast about conversations?
Julie learns best by having a conversation. She knows that conversations are an exploration to progress through to an answer or outcome. That it’s about setting up a safe space to be able to sit in the mess and figure it out with people. Her lived experience coupled with deep curiosity has given her the lived expertise to share her stories and knowledge about how conversations can be a good thing, and can even save a life.
