Our friends at Knowledge Architecture are organising and hosting the first knowledge management conference for the AEC industry - KA Connect - and KnowledgeSmart are proud to be sponsoring the event.
This is a fascinating conference, with a superb lineup of leading AEC figures presenting on a range of topics. With a general theme of, 'Short Talks, Big Ideas', this promises to be one of the key events of our calendar year. With influences like TED (http://www.ted.com/) and marketing guru Seth Godin (http://www.sethgodin.com/), KA-Connect promises to be breath of fresh air.
A format tailor-made to stimulate fresh ideas and original thinking, boasting a blend of blue sky talks with Pecha Kucha (20 slides, 20 seconds per slide), expert panel discussions, video and breakout groups.
The speaker lineup is diverse, sharing emerging trends, new ideas, best practice and lessons learned for building knowledge-driven firms. The goal is to empower leaders in AEC firms to engage in, 'the process of systematically creating, capturing and sharing knowledge assets to leverage (yourself and) your organization'.
The conference organiser is Knowledge Architecture (http://www.knowledge-architecture.com/), a knowledge management and information systems consultancy, based in San Francisco.
The show takes place in Chicago on April 8 & 9, at theWit Hotel. (http://www.ka-connect.com/). Maybe we'll see you there.
