It could have been very special indeed as when I arrived and looked out over the stunning view of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House I noticed a score of photographers on a nearby roof top with cameras with telephoto lens on tripods and I was told that in 15 minutes time the Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 on its maiden commercial flight from Singapore to Sydney was to fly low over the harbour.
I was so excited this was just too good to be true as I had already seen the A380 on the tarmac at Singapore's Changi airport on my flight down to Sydney. But unfortunately I had brought the English weather with me - the cloud base was low and it was drizzling. Either the flight over the harbour was canned or we just did not get to see it because of the cloud. I even heard that the return flight to Singapore was delayed an hour or so the next day because of bad weather!
But apart from that disappointment it was a great Cafe on the theme "What will be the impact of Social Tools within Organizations?" which I co-facilitated with Helen Paige who is regional director of the Gurteen Knowledge Community in Adelaide. About 70 people attended - one of my largest yet and you can get an idea of the energy of the Cafe in this video I took.
And what a great view! Annalie thank you so much for hosting this. And a big thanks for everyone who turned out and made it such a fun evening.

On 25th October 2007 I ran a Knowledge Cafe in Sydney. It was hosted by Annalie Killian of AMP on the 25th Floor of their building overlooking Sydney Harbour.
The Cafe was on the theme "What will be the impact of Social Tools within Organizations?" which I co-facilitated with Helen Paige who is regional director of the Gurteen Knowledge Community in Adelaide. About 70 people attended. It was a grat evening.
