What we're about

The Melbourne Knowledge Management Leadership Forum is a face-to-face education and networking forum, run by KM practitioners for KM practitioners.

Meetings are usually held at least once per month in the central business district in Melbourne, Australia. Membership is free, and attendance at meetings usually requires a small donation to cover drinks and nibbles.

Get to this MeetUp site quickly at http://melbournekmlf.org/ !

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 Organising Committee

A New Paradigm for Social Change

Location visible to members

Description: Imagine bringing together thousands of people from a range of disciplines who desire to make the world more sustainable. Most people do not usually consider themselves activists, but they care about creating positive social change. Andrew Gaines believes there is potential to achieve a collaborative environmental-progressive movement that is orders of magnitude more effective by connecting people through "Kitchen Table Conversations". Indeed, it is not actually about being ‘more’ effective... It’s about being so effective that we succeed in turning things around for our planet. In this interactive session we will experience a Kitchen Table Conversation to connect a range of global challenges with the actions we can take as individuals to mitigate their impact. Outcomes: Participating in this event will enable you to: - Understand how and why the Kitchen Table Conversations approach works - Influence people to act in environmentally responsible ways - Explain how the interdependent challenges we face as a global society are connected and how to act to mitigate the negative outcomes Our Facilitator: Andrew Gaines is the Founder and Instigator, Inspiring Transition at Be The Change Australia, a platform to support a citizen led educational movement to inspire mainstream commitment to transitioning to a life-affirming culture. https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrewgaines1/ Pre event browsing: http://www.bethechange.org.au/homepage/inspiring-transition/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4gJvL3y4oQ Agenda: 6:00 - 6:30 Networking over drinks and nibbles 6:30 - 7:45 Exploration of "Kitchen Table Conversations" 7:45 - 8:00 Wrap up and informal conversations 8:00 Close Note re Zoom recording: Audio and/or visual recordings will occur during this Zoom session and your image and voice may be included in such recordings.

Facilitating Cocreated Projects Worth Doing

Online event

Description: Everyone has ideas on a range of things, but how can you bring these ideas into reality? The CoCreated Projects Worth Doing approach is a creative and inclusive activity that enables ideas to be structured and clustered to produce a collaborative project. This session will be conducted as a facilitated conversation, in which the participants will experience how to generate a CoCreated Project Worth Doing in a shared online document. Arthur will start the conversation with a few insights on the process and then we will collectively cocreate a Project Worth Doing for a specific context. Relevance to the KM community is it cocreates new knowledge and builds the project as a vehicle of implementation, which generates both tangible outputs (social benefits) and intangible outcomes (learning, capabilities and confidence to act). Outcomes: Participating in this event will enable you to: - Facilitate your own Cocreated Projects Worth Doing - Influence others to engage in social benefit projects - Increase your confidence to work virtually in inclusive ways Our Facilitator: Dr Arthur Shelley is an international educator, knowledge leader and project curator.
