Daniel Stillman

Conversation Designer, The Conversation Factory

Daniel Stillman designs conversations for a living, and insists that you actually do that too.

As an independent design facilitator, he works with clients and organizations of all shapes and sizes (From Google to Visa, to name a few) to help them frame and sustain productive and collaborative conversations, deepen their facilitation skills, and coach them through the innovation process.

He’s the author of Good Talk: How to Design Conversations that Matter, a handbook for leaders looking to create change. His first book, The Paper Airplane Experiment and the 30 Second Elephant is about origami and teams and yes, it’s as strange as it sounds.

Daniel also hosts The Conversation Factory podcast where he interviews leaders, change makers and innovators on how they design the conversations in their work and lives.
