Knowledge Management Through Stories Workshop - 8 May 2008

“Knowledge Management Through Stories Workshop”
Presented by Dr Peter Tobin from Peter Tobin Consultancy
8 May 2008

Who should attend

Everyone! We may not all be natural storytellers, but we can all appreciate the power of stories to help us to learn: to improve knowledge for ourselves and others. Stories can be used to help people at all levels, from all functions, from all industries and sectors, whether from for-profit or not-for-profit organisations. From the Chief Executive’s office to operations, for the younger or more mature, quiet or outgoing, stories and their use can be an important part of the way we work and improve the performance of yourself, your team and your whole organisation. This workshop is ideal for those looking for a better way to create a smarter organisation, whether they are Knowledge Management practitioners, managers or just interested in how to improve knowledge sharing.
