CILIP Knowledge Cafe Masterclass

Knowledge Cafe masterclass

Thursday 1st November 2018

  • 10.00 - 16.15 (registration from 09.15)

Information management and knowledge management shouldn't be primarily about capturing and sharing stuff, it should be about making sense of how the world works. We understand things through the everyday conversations we have with each other. How are these conversations started? It's by asking powerful questions.

David Gurteen is bringing his Knowledge Cafe masterclass to CILIP. It's for anyone interested in facilitating more purposeful, constructive and creative conversations in their team or organisation and will be of particular interest to people working in the knowledge and information management sectors.

    “It sounds such a simple idea, but until you have experienced a Knowledge Café you won't understand just how powerful they can be in connecting people, generating new ideas and tackling issues. David in particular brings a special kind of energy to the room that really helps, but when you stop and think about it, we are given very little time in our working lives to engage honestly and authentically with one another in that uniquely human activity, that fundamental building block of trust and understanding; conversation."
