What is the Knowledge Network?
Knowledge Network is a supportive and friendly group for those who work in Information, Knowledge and Learning in professional services firms, such as law firms.
It is run by me, Helene Russell of TheKnowledgeBusiness, and has been supporting KMers for more than a decade.
Currently all events, coaching and networking are delivered virtually.
What is included for 2021?
- 6x hour-long virtual learning events/webinars
- 2x 45 minute coaching calls
- 2x virtual coffee connections
Who is it for?
If you are interested in learning, information and knowledge and work for any kind of professional services organisation (or indeed any other kind of business) you will find it interesting and useful.
We have had a wide variety of members, including Heads of Knowledge, Heads of Information and Library, Information professionals at all levels, Knowledge Systems Managers, Professional Support and Knowledge Lawyers, and consultant lawyers. We’ve also had a variety of senior leaders come along to individual events of particular interest to them.
The majority of members are from the UK, but we also have members from Europe and the Channel Islands. Learning events are held in English and during UK / GMT lunchtimes, so as long as you can attend then (whatever time it is in your time-zone), you are welcome.
What sort of topics do we cover?
In the past we’ve had events on AI and machine learning, ISO 30401, design thinking for KM, after action reviews, social media for knowledge sharing, promoting KM, metrics and measurements, new technologies, KM strategies, culture, motivations for sharing, innovation, intranets that work, GDPR, leadership and influencing, writing in plain English, mobile KM, international management challenges, change management and all kinds of topics.
We’ve heard from practitioners (legal, health, engineering, marketing and other sectors), consultants and academics.
We’ve heard from speakers from US, Canada, Europe and UK.
Topics always depend on the needs of the members. At the time of writing this, for the 2021 programme, I have speakers booked to talk about knowledge sharing, organisational storytelling and trust and I’ll be booking the rest of the speakers depending on member preferences. If you’d like your favourite topic included, book your space early this year.
How much does it cost?
£265 for one person for an annual subscription.
Two spaces within the same organisation are discounted to £475.
If you’d like to book 3 or more spaces, get in touch.
How do I book?
Email me for an invoice. It’s that simple.
Not quite right for you?
If this isn’t quite right for you, have you thought of organising your own in-house training day or training programme? I can offer virtual or in person events (depending on lockdown/tier rules of course) on a wide variety of topics. Get in touch to ask me more.
