It’s a practical day, packed full of good things. Helping you to enhance performance and unlock potential in your own organisations. We hope you’ll join us.

In brief:

Henley Forum’s Director, Dr Sharon Varney, will be your host for the day and will help you to warm up your thinking on this important topic. She will also introduce the Henley Forum Listening Project and explain how you can get involved.

In our Knowledge Management Room 101, expert panelists will be vying with one another to consign their top peeves from the world of knowledge management into Room 101. Expect both controversy and fun as we take a light-hearted approach to the serious subject of deciding what in the world of KM has had its day.

Tim Andrews from Stretch Learning will be our host, but unlike the TV show, in our workshop you get to decide what will be banished to Room 101 and why. Our panelists include Chris Collison from Knowledgeable Ltd, Cora Newell from KM Insight Consulting and James Brown, The Happy Workplace

In June, our Members’ Showcase session, Enabling the magnet for talent, will be led by Ceri Hughes, Director, Head of Learning at KPMG UK. Ceri will share some of her experiences and insights from her work in bringing their Learning and Knowledge capabilities together in KPMG UK.

Volunteers will be invited to have a conversation about the qualities and skills needed for knowledgeable practice in the next 10 years, as part of the Henley Forum Listening Project.

Rounding off the day, Patricia Eng and Paul Corney will be leading an interactive session – The ISO KM standard and you. There has been a lot of debate about this already in the knowledge management community. Some say it’s a game changer, others are more sceptical. But, if you are involved knowledge work, we think you need to develop an informed opinion about whether and how the Standard might help you and your organisation. We expect to have an open discussion among professionals from different organisations and sectors. It’s one not to miss.
