Earlier in the year I ran a Gurteen Knowledge Cafe masterclass in Copenhagen. One of the participants was Mille Holm Nielsen, so I was delighted to receive this little email from her a few days ago.

Dear David

Last week I held my first Knowledge Café, and it was a great success.

We were approximately 20 people together (from management to engineers) and needed to discuss how to ensure that we use learning and improve our daily business, processes etc. I had 5 tables of 4 people and ran 3 rounds with the big circle in the end.

The feedback I have received has been very positive. They enjoyed that they could just focus on the conversation and discuss a lot of different ideas with different people, and all the time got new inspiration when they changed tables.

So it was a very good experience, and I will definitely use it again, when I see a proper topic for the occasion.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Best regards, Mille

Have you run a Knowledge Cafe yet? If not, then ask me for a copy of my tipsheet to help get you started. I have it available in a number of languages. Or ask my about my masterclasses. I have several planned around the world in 2014. The first in Oslo late January.

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
