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.

Creating in fragments: Substack as a tool for reaching the time poor

Location visible to members

***

Creativity both demands and develops capacity for imagination, concentration, resilience, adaptability, reflexivity, and critical thinking. This requires energy, focus, and time.
What happens, then, when the demands of life leach time and energy from our inner worlds? When the obligations of work and family fragment our time to focus on creative work, where does this leave us?
In her work as a creativity mentor and transformative facilitator, Meredith Lewis has found herself working with many knowledge workers who are challenged with finding the time to develop a sense of creative identity and build a creative process. In this session, she will discuss how she has been using her Substack publication Methods and Madness: Notes on Creativity to reach and support the
time-poor.

Our Speaker: Meredith Lewis
I help people regain trust in their creative identities, as individuals and within groups.
My work as a creative mentor is about helping professionals working on complex creative projects find their coordinates and map their way from scary beginning, through the messy middle to a meaningful resolution.
The result: regain your creative confidence, build resilience and sustain the effort required to finish that book, online learning system or creative venture.
As a facilitator I’ve worked with groups from across sectors and time zones, offering guidance and support as they approach problems from unexplored angles and uncover the hidden passageways that allow meaningful communication to flow.
The result: profound insights, implementable recommendations and useful content that moves you closer towards your goals.
