19 Feb Gurteen Knowledge Cafe – Bristol
I attended the inaugural Gurteen Knowledge Cafe in Bristol on 16th February. David Gurteen made a special trip down to the West Country to support Debbie Lawley the Bristol Cafe organiser. It was hosted by the Orange KM team and specifically Peter Hall, Head of KM. Since it was a launch event we didn’t get much time to discuss any specific theme but we did take the opportunity to get to know each other and to think about what topics and themes we might like to discuss moving forward. David also spent some time (probably a little too much time) introducing the Knowledge Cafe format. It was well attended with a good mix of people from different work backgrounds – from corporates, to public sector and even a few fierce independents like me. I was interested enough to commit to the next event – I guess it will depend on the theme but I’m not completely clear on how as a group we will select a theme?
Three ideas from me:
Are learning and knowledge sharing the same thing?
Is there such a thing as knowledge overload?
Is there such a thing as sustainable development?
