“George Pór is an extraordinary human being of depth and wisdom with a keen interest in the expansion and healing of human consciousness. He is a pioneer in the area of “collective intelligence” and in using technology to form social connections in order to create a better future for humanity and sentience. George is an innovative leader, mentor, and collaborator in many other areas as well, including group process and facilitation, coaching, systems, and business. His decades of practical experience engaging and evolving various transformative theories in various settings, while developing individual and collective interior awareness through meditation and state practices, along with his genuine interest and skill in the workings of human nature and society, and his desire to serve collective consciousness on the planet, are seasoned with maturity that evoke respect and attention. George is a dear soul and a gifted human being. I am grateful to know him and to be both the recipient of his gifts and deeply inspired by his generosity in service to life.” Venita Ramirez, Owner, Pacific Integral – Transformative Leadership and Conscious Evolution

“George has been among the most influential consultants to the European Union, which the future will show. In a very short time, he helped to introduce the practices of Art of Hosting (known there now as Art of Participatory Leadership) and Communities of Practice. Both applied well will help us see a European Union as citizens and future generations need it today. If you need to get a step ahead of your time, George is your man.”Rainer v. Leoprechting, Official, European Commission

Isaacs, Co-Founder of The World Cafe
