|David Gurteen in action|
David Gurteen facilitated an interactive Knowledge Café with the help of drums at the recent International Knowledge Management Conference (ICKM 2012).
It formed part of the opening proceedings, and helped conference delegates connect with each other during the speed networking session, as well as connection through the drumming.

"Is the lecture format of teaching an effective way of learning and sharing knowledge and if not, what is?"

"At this conference, to what extend are you prepared:
1. to get value from being here?
2. to engage personally to achieve this?
3. to take risks to learn?
4. to take responsibility for the learning & engagement of others?"
|ICKM 2012 Conference delegates|
The success of a conference depends on each delegate's willingness to participate!
The combination of the drums facilitated the interactiveness of the Knowledge Café, and it created a wonderful synergy for the rest of the conference!
