Knowledge Cafe; Knowledge Management



As technology and bandwidth increase, our ability to share information will also increase. The Information Age will continue to accelerate, flooding our lives with data, audio, video and virtual reality. As organizations struggle to make the best advantage of this flood of information, attempting to harness technology to further their planning, education, training, and knowledge-sharing abilities, it is important for them to remember the power of this ancient tool.” Bill Ives Partner, Merced Group Storytelling has a rich history in knowledge management. This Manchester Knowledge Cafe will be hosted in the presence of two seasoned storytellers to introduce the practice and its business benefits. Lizzie Gates of Lonely Furrow Company and Lisa Rossetti of Positive Lives will be co-presenting a workshop on the uses of storytelling in Organisations. Lizzie and Lisa are both published writers, coaches and facilitators, and work with individuals and organisations using story-based approaches. This collaborative workshop will develop your awareness of the power of storytelling and of organisational story tools which can improve communication skills, confidence and teamwork. More information on Storytelling can be found in my blog post HERE Further information on the Knowledge Café concept HERE The North West Knowledge Café Groupsite is run by Peter Bond.
