A brief postscript to my recent visit to Chicago, where I attended the inaugural KA-Connect Knowledge management conference. The team at Knowledge Architecture have been posting some of the presenter videos recorded over the two days, onto their website.
Here is mine: http://ka-connect.com/talks.php?vdx=48.
The funny thing about my presentation was that I had the very last slot on day 2. It's fair to say that of my Pecha Kucha session - 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide - about 75% of what I had to speak about, had already been covered at some point during the previous 35 talks! So much of what you see here is delivered on the fly. :)
There were some terrific presenters during the course of the 2 days. Here are some of my favourites:
Laurie Dreyer, head of HR at US design firm Anshen + Allen (34 mins long, but frankly unmissable viewing!): http://ka-connect.com/talks.php?vdx=40.
John Moebes, Director of Construction at Crate+Barrel, with a fascinating insight into what owners expect from their design, engineering and construction partners:
Michael Kilkelly, Associate at Gehry Partners, gives us a look behind the scenes of one of the world's leading design firms: http://ka-connect.com/talks.php?vdx=57.
KA-Connect 2011 takes place in San Francisco, in April 2011.
