Ignite, Insight, Inspire

Ignite is a fun and fast-paced method to share the ideas you are passionate about.

The Melbourne KMLF is passionate about practising all that is new and effective in the world of Knowledge Management. Looking forward to this new year, we planned a number of refreshing topics, speakers and approaches, the first of which is an Ignite evening. So, what is Ignite?

Igniting an evening of knowledge sharing w/ Arthur Shelley
Imagine an environment where we want to get our idea across in 5 minutes. The message we want to share is captured in 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds, to create an energetic pace in which we present and facilitate conversation that inspires new thoughts and ideas.

Participating in this event will:

  • Introduce you to Ignite (in the Ignite format)
  • Why the method works and how you can make it work for you
  • Putting Ignite to work

Knowledge Sharing – much used but poorly defined and understood w/ Peter Chomley
Peter will ignite a conversation about knowledge sharing; offer some insights and, hopefully, inspire a more informed understanding of the common ground.

Participating in this event will:

  • Share current thinking on knowledge and knowledge sharing
  • Explore the continuum of what how sharing occurs
  • Propose an Insight and Ignite a continuing conversation

Our reality is also our virtual experience w/ Helen Mitchell
Social media has been a buzz word for some time now. The web is continuing to change the way we communicate and share knowledge both personally, and for business. Yet there are mixed feelings about this for some.

Participating in this event will:

  • Explore how we communicate together, virtually, more than ever before
  • Do some time-travelling of popular disruptive innovations of the past
  • Consider how we find the balance and embrace the change

The Art of Conversation w/ Keith De La Rue
Conversation doesn’t just reshuffle the cards: it creates new cards. – Theodore Zeldin

Do you feel good after having a good conversation? New research is demonstrating that talking with each other actually makes us smarter – both as a group and individually – and that good conversations leads to better ideas.

Participating in this event will:

  • Provide new insight into how we can use conversation to be more innovative
  • Give you an update on some of the latest thinking in the field
  • Explain why social media is giving us tools to better handle complexity
