Ark Group have just published the final agenda for KM Asia 2013 in Singapore.

I will be there running a Knowledge Cafe on Why is Trying to Engage People so Difficult? on the first day and a workshop on the third day Conversation: Our Most Powerful KM Tool.

But better still, in making the whole conference more interactive and conversational we have Nancy Dixon chairing the two days.

Nancy is a huge proponent of conversation in the workplace. If you are not familiar with Nancy's work take a look at her blog and posts of hers such as this one Why Knowledge Management Didn't Save General Motors: Addressing Complex Issues By Convening Conversation.

This is what she says about herself in her blog "Nancy Dixon focuses on the people side of knowledge management. Our most effective knowledge sharing tool is conversation. The words we choose, the questions we ask, and the metaphors we use to explain ourselves, are what determine our success in creating new knowledge, as well as sharing that knowledge with each other."

It should prove to be a great two days. I hope to see you there :-)

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
