Knowledge Management Consultant
A core member of BP's knowledge management team during the late 90's, he now looks at organisational capability, and finds ways to embed the company’s knowledge in core business processes. He is a recognised coach and facilitator, challenging the statements and actions of team members, both co-located and virtual.
In 2001 he co-authored a book with Chris Collison, called “Learning to Fly”, about the lessons learned from applying Knowledge management inside BP. A second edition is to be published in October 2004 including stories of how other organisations have applied the techniques.
He has just returned to BP following an 18 month secondment to the UN where he helped develop approaches for sharing responses to the HIV pandemic on a global scale.
He has a deep understanding of human dynamics in networks, and has been responsible for the "Peer Assist" process across the company - a keymechanism for mobilising and harnessing the knowledge in peoples’ heads.
Geoff passionately believes that learning things together and sharing the outcome is a powerful way to work.
