This June will be the tenth anniversary of my first ever KM Conference presentation and as luck would have it (thank you Mr G and Leah) I have been invited to preside over the closing review session at this years KMUK 2011.
Two days over 21-22nd June at Canary Wharf, this promises to be a great mix of new and old faces all very ably chaired by Victoria Ward. I am particularly interested to see what Nick Milton and Ron Young have been up to over the last few years and a welcome return to Chris Collison who I know has some great stories to share.
The case studies all look really interesting this year which means making a choice of which to see needs to be carefully planned in advance.
The best of the regulars include Nick Davies, Dave Snowden and Helen Nicol who I would pay just to see them eat lunch never mind share their latest insights and ideas.
I am the closing act of a final afternoon of reviewing, after actions and lessons learned in all their shapes and forms. In my session I am hoping to tie up some useful new techniques and ideas with the cynefin framework to make sense of the overall learning from the two days.
For anyone interested in networking and widening their connections KMUK 2011 has emerged as an examplar of such. A perfect example of improving an event based on delegate feedback with longer than average breaks for conversation and connection making and an integrated Gurteen Knowledge Café.
Bring plenty of business cards, tweet (#kmuk11) your essential insights and thought provoking quotes and make the most of this unique opportunity for sharing, learning and imagining collaborative ideas. Last year Nick Davies showed us all how to meet, greet and do introductions so if there is anyone you want introducing to all you need do is ask.
