The collective energy created in a room of people sharing knowledge, exploring concepts and exchanging ideas is a fantastic thing to witness. This is the inspiration behind The Energy of Conversation, established by David Finney in the summer of 2008. These days, as well as delivering training and coaching, I also give free talks on subjects close to my heart. There are times when everything starts with a conversation and so the quality of that conversation determines everything.
I am particularly concerned with the welfare of children and animals and regularly donate to charities of this nature. I discovered the horrors of our farming systems and became a vegetarian in 2005 and went Vegan in 2016. I give voluntary talks at schools and colleges on farming practices (on behalf of Compassion in World Farming) and I am also Membership Secretary of GAP (Greens for Animal Protection) regularly taking part in animal protection activities.
Shortly after going Vegan I wrote a song called Red Red World to describe the feelings I had when changing my lifestyle. The song has been utilised as a soundtrack to a film and was also released as a single in its own right (in July) 2018. I decided to donate all royalties to animal charities. If you would like to support the cause you can find me on Apple Music, Amazon Music, iTunes, Spotify etc. etc. just search for "Red Red World" or "David Finney".
