I would like to invite you to a FREE Knowledge Cafe that I will be holding in Jakarta on the afternoon of Thursday 2nd February. You can learn more about the event and register here:
I have been running Knowledge Cafes all over the world for the last ten
years. They grew out of my frustration with death-by-powerpoint,
chalk-and-talk type presentations. A Knowledge Cafe is different.
In a Knowledge Cafe, the speaker normally only speaks for 10 - 20 minutes
without slides and poses a questions to the participants (not the
audience!) that is then discussed for the remainder of the Kcafe.
This conversational approach is a far more interesting and engaging way to
learn than "sitting listening". It also is a wonderful format for informal
networking and I have often run Kcafes where a number of networks have come
together to discuss a topic of mutual interest.
I run open Knowledge Cafes regularly in London. An open Kcafe is hosted by
an organization who sees the value in the Kcafes and they are open to anyone who
would like to come along. They are totally free.
You never know what you might learn, who you might meet and what might
come of the event. And if you are more of a listener than a talker then
that's OK too ... in a Kcafe you are not compelled to do anything you don't
want to do. Just turn up and enjoy the event..
So come along on February 2nd, learn what the Knowledge Cafe is all about, meet some people you don't know and have some interesting conversations.
