IPP Consulting are hosting another free 2 1/2 hour workshop on Thursday 23rd October, this time looking at Enterprise Search.

Its a requirement that comes up all the time – give me a “Google-like search capability”… but why is it so hard?

Places are limited and you must RSVP – further details over on the ChiefTech blog.

Arthur Shelley, author of the The Organizational Zoo A Survival Guide to Workplace Behavior, will be running a workshop in Sydney on 17th November on Knowledge Frameworks for Enhanced Performance.

This is a participant driven day that offers strategies for promoting a knowledge sharing culture via case studies, participants own experiences and the professional experience of the presenter.  Theory is minimised, the focus is on practical solutions which will deliver strategies for effective knowledge capabilities to create dynamic high performance knowledge organisations. Each participant will receive comprehensive documentation as an ongoing reference.

For more information, please visit the PICS Website.

We had some great feedback about last night’s KM Forum panel on the value of social networking:

“I would like to say "Thank you" for organising last night forum and ‘Thank you’ to the panel for the discussion.  This is by far the best forum night.”


“May I commend on the very interesting session at yesterday’s forum… Well done…. will definitely be sharing this with [our internal KM team]. "

UPDATE: Also check out Michael Specht’s report from the panel.

PS Don’t forget to RSVP for the special forum event with David Gurteen on the 10th October.

Please note: The early bird discount for these events runs out at the end of this week
