One of the key themes for me at this year’s KMWorld conference held in Washington DC Nov 5-8 was diverse thinking. Tues am keynote Amy Wilkinson, author of Creator’s Code, first urged us to think of diversity, not by race, religion, or politics, but rather by diverse thinking stypes. Wed am keynote, Don Pontefract, author of Open Thinking, discussed critical thinking and creative thinking. Closing keynote speakers and long-time practitioners Tom Stewart and Dave Snowden, came back to the discussion of diverse thinking styles in their pithy and often humerous remarks. I think we had a lot of diverse thinking styles at the conference this year with lots of attendees and speakers from many different countries and experiences — perfect for knowledge sharing which we did for four full networking, learning, and exciting days! If you were unable to join us this year, check out the presentations and videos (clips on our KMWorld Facebook page) but more will be up at this link soon. There are many blog posts about the KMWorld speakers and talks as well, check out those from Mary Abraham!
#KMWorld 2019 will be held same week, Nov 4-7 next year at the same place, JW Marriott in Washington DC — mark your calendars and thinking about sharing your experience and knowledge as a speaker next year — call for speakers on our website in January! Thanks again to all the speakers and sponsors who helped make KMWorld 2018 so successful!
