The Real Conversation
What is the Real Conversation about?
We all know it’s good to talk. The Real Conversation aims to provide a way of having a better dialogue with people and build mutual understanding. The Welsh Government aims to make it easier for people to understand the challenges we are facing in the current economic climate.
Just as importantly, we want to get better at listening and understanding. By raising awareness and stimulating debate, we will be more informed and better decisions can be made.
The events are highly interactive and we hope you will find it engaging with questions that will stimulate alongside facilitated table discussions. It is vital that we get the right mix of people at the event so we have a balanced view across all stakeholders.
The next 'Real Conversation' will be taking place on:
Thursday 27 March 2014, Venue Cymru, Llandudno
There are a limited number of places available. To avoid disappointment, place a booking via our online booking form.
Who should get involved?
We want the Real Conversation to reach and resonate with everyone and the more people get on board, the bigger and better the conversation will be.
For young people
The Real Conversation is your chance to speak directly to decision makers and tell us like it is on the difficulties you have encountered gaining the right qualifications and work. We really want to know what you think and how you feel, so getting feedback is crucial.
Come and listen first-hand to what young people have to say. Don't think that young people have the skills you need? Do you consider young people to be negative and disillusioned? The Real Conversation is your opportunity to influence today's youth and, at the same time, perhaps be surprised as to what young people actually have to offer your business.
For other professionals
Are young people being given the right opportunities? How can we make organisations work better together? These are just some of the areas we will be discussing in relation to youth engagement, employment and progression.
