You may have noticed that I am starting to put a lot more effort into my Knowledge Cafes. They started out as a response to what I saw as death-by-power-point presentations. In the beginning (I ran my first Knowledge Cafe in London in September 2002) I simply wanted to make such presentations more conversational. But as I have run them and taught people how to run them all over the world I have discovered that they can be adapted to different purposes and are far more powerful than I ever realised ten years ago.

I will be running many more Knowledge Cafes in London in coming months and also around the UK, the rest of Europe and off course during my travels across the globe. I will also be running more Knowledge Cafe Masterclasses where I teach people how to adapt and run them for varying business purposes. The first of my regional Knowledge Cafes will be in Winchester on 10th May and I will be running a Knowledge Cafe Masterclass in Edinburgh on 7th June

To help share and develop knowledge in running Knowledge Cafes, I have recently created the Gurteen Knowledge Cafe Forum. This is a LinkedIn subgroup of the Gurteen Knowledge Community on LinkedIn.

So if you are interested in running Knowledge Cafes then join the group. And if you would like to learn more about the Cafes first hand - come along to one of my events.

No Knowledge Cafes in your neck of the woods! Then invite me to come and run one :-)

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
