Earlier in the year I made my first trip to Moscow and those of you who have heard my stories know it was an 'interesting' experience. The trip wasn't quite a KM one as I ran a Knowledge Cafe at an Intranet conference but it was a challenge to run a kcafe where the conversation at the tables was in Russian and the large group conversation had to be turned into a report back session and the feedback translated for me . None the less it was a success and only reinforced my view that if you have a good topic and an engaged bunch of people you cannot go too far wrong!

Then just a week or so ago I learnt from Jerry Ash while at KM Asia  in Singapore that he, Richard Cross and Chris Collison were participating in the first Russian KM Conference and now I have just came a cross a short trip report from Gary Colet.

Some interesting comments that the organizers had not really grasped what KM was all about and I suspect many of the participants too. Also Gary's comment about 'ordering' people to share brought a chuckle from me! Well worth a read for the insights.

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
