This month we will move between Engineering and Education!  We will hear

Speaker 1: Stephen Davie is Senior Consultant  |  Organisational Behaviour and Leadership, Management Consulting Australasia, Regional Knowledge Activist  | Arup Australasia.

Stephen will provide an overview of Arup’s approach to KM, including a demonstration of the key knowledge tools that underpin and enable the broader strategy across the firm.

Arup is a global engineering and consulting powerhouse, responsible for iconic projects such as the Sydney Opera House, Channel Tunnel Rail Link, and Beijing Watercube.  Leveraging the collective expertise and experience of Arup’s 11,000 specialists is fundamental to the firm’s knowledge management strategy and approach.  Stephen Davie is Arup’s ‘Knowledge Activist’ for the Australasia Region, and in addition to executing Arup’s global KM strategy here in Australia, Stephen is advising a number of other firms on their own KM strategies, frameworks, tools and processes.

Speaker 2:  Jacqui Thorburn is Manager Knowledge Systems at Sydney Institute TAFE.

Jacqui will be one of the speakers at this year’s ARK, co-facilitating a workshop on Developing and nurturing communities of practice and networks.  For us Jacqui will be sharing some insights, experiences and lessons learned, past and present, around building communities

Sydney Institute is a Registered Training Organisation under the Australian Quality Training Framework.  It has over 76,000 annual enrolments in 750 training programs, making Sydney Institute the largest vocational training provider in Australia.  Sydney Institute’s programs reflect international and local trends in emerging, growing, changing and established business and industry sectors.  The Institute produces highly skilled and motivated job ready graduates willing to participate and lead the workforce in a challenging and highly competitive global economy.

Both Stephen and Jacqui will be happy to answer questions from the floor about their experiences, and we all look forward to an interesting, stimulating, enjoyable and sociable evening of learning not only from the experiences of our guest speakers, but also from the additional discussions that they will surely prompt amongst all of us gathered to listen!
