How It Works
Strike Up A Chat`s social enterprise scheme encourages and supports effective communication between people.
We seek to enrich our global community by actively supporting respectful communication between people, with the hope of creating a wave of friendly conversation that all can take part in.
Everything starts with a chat, and Strike Up A Chat seeks to bring people together to help strengthen community and bring joy to the people in it. Together we are creating an epidemic of friendly people chatting with each other face to face instead of phone to phone.
An important role within our global Strike Up A Chat community is that of Chat Ambassador. Our chat ambassador`s bring Strike Up A Chat into their own neighbourhoods to build community spirit, have fun, and enjoy the great feelings that friendly chatting provides.
Many chat ambassadors experience a flow down effect of increased self-confidence and enhanced communication skills. Some chats can even lead to new friendships being formed.
Strike Up A Chat has developed a unique system to help our chat ambassadors implement our Strike Up A Chat method for effective conversation. All Chat Ambassadors receive a chatting Guidelines document that provides helpful tips for effective communication, as well as the 4-Step Strike Up A Chat framework for initiating chats.
Our chat ambassador social enterprise scheme is a free community service. It is our way of sharing the Strike Up A Chat values, and signifies our commitment to actively bring more kindness and care into the community.
