Marjorie Parker

Marjorie Parker: Fifty years ago, en route to New York after doing volunteer work in Palestine, I made a quick pitstop in Norway to visit a friend. I never left. Funnily enough as fate will have it, I met a Norwegian, not here in Norway, but at a creativity conference in Buffalo, N.Y.  He later became my husband and business partner.

I have been officially retired for several years, but I often have conversations around the kitchen table with consultants searching for new ways to support dialogue and creativity in their client organizations. A few years ago, Anna Pool and I co-authored Creating Futures that Matter Today – Facilitating Change through Shared Vision. We described methodologies and experiences with integrating dialogue and processes for creating shared vision, and the exciting breakthroughs achieved when using these in combination.

Otherwise here in Norway, my life as a soon-to-be 85 year old is enriched by having a son with family nearby, a mountain cabin, a loving dog, access to cultural activities, a long-standing dialogue group, good friends and legs that still allow for hiking.
