What we're about

The Melbourne Knowledge Management Leadership Forum (KMLF) is a knowledge, education and networking forum, run by Volunteer KM practitioners for KM practitioners.

Meetings are usually held on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the central business district in Melbourne, Australia. During COVID restrictions, Zoom video events are being hosted online. Membership is free, and attendance at meetings usually requires a small donation to cover drinks and nibbles.

At KMLF meetings, members can participate in addressing and discussing issues regarding knowledge management and related topics. The aim of this participation is to set the foundation for a casual network of interested practitioners and scholars to discuss knowledge management and its impact on both business and government organisations.

The regular attendance at forum meetings is between 20-40 people. These represent executives and knowledge management practitioners from government and a range of corporations and SMEs. Academia, consultancies and vendors are also represented. Industries represented include legal, defence, manufacturing, C&IT and banking & finance. Our committee includes senior consultants, managers and executives from government and commercial enterprises and KM practitioners.

Meetings usually start at around 6 pm. The formal session usually wraps up by 7:30 pm, with networking and refreshments afterwards. After that, anyone interested can then adjourn for further discussions over dinner at a restaurant nearby.

Best regards,

The March edition of KMLF will be a session on the talent and knowledge that is often overseen in organisations when it comes to women and knowledge management. The session will be facilitated by Meredith Lewis who has experienced this and has been part of the KMLF community for many years.

The conversation will be interactive and engaging, centred around the following propositions:
1) setting the context of women in KM by opening the floor to everyone to share things they have seen, heard or experienced in KM both good and bad;
2) followed by discussing strategies to enable the talent and knowledge that women have; and
3) discuss what the next steps are moving forward.

As a skilled and experienced facilitator, interviewer, trainer, and mentor, Meredith is able to open up meaningful dialogue, analyse emergent narratives, and synthesise themes and issues into meaningful insights, implementable recommendations, and useful content. Drawing on 30 years’ experience in the tertiary education, community, and creative sectors, Meredith approaches her work with originality, imagination, professionalism, and a deep empathy for the needs of the client.

Meredith have created a space to collect and share stories ahead of the event. You can find it here: https://wakelet.com/wake/MtndUMgHRcjpbuBvBPuai
