My work in organisational Knowledge Management, engagement and internal communication started, formally, a little more than a decade ago. But I’ve been capturing, exchanging, evaluating and using knowledge since my working life began.
As a researcher, then producer and programme editor for the BBC, I would have achieved little without actively collaborating and sharing knowledge with my colleagues and interviewees. Later, working in training and course development, I learned far more from course members and fellow tutors than I ever imparted to them. Moving into websites and intranets opened up a world of fresh opportunities to learn and share. And now, helping organisations to implement and sustain knowledge-working in their businesses gives me the chance to put all that learning into action – and continue to build on it.
So this blog site is, in some ways, a tribute to all the knowledgeable and patient individuals I’ve encountered, and all the shoulders I’ve left footprints on!
