Whatever organisation we work in we are increasingly being asked to work and learn remotely but it is often not as easy as we would like. So NETIKX have invited Paul Corney, Managing Director of Knowledge et al, to present his ideas about what factors are relevant in architecting virtual spaces to make ‘virtual teams’ work well. Paul is a very experienced conference speaker and knowledge consultant so this is a great opportunity to hear his views and to network with others from across organisations about what does and does not work for them.

Following Paul’s presentation we will have a group exercise where we will sketch a typology of virtual meeting scenarios, technologies that may underpin them, and what they make either easy or difficult. We’ll also share our own experiences of virtual meeting spaces, and try to find rules of thumb whereby we can make such gatherings work better. There will then be an opportunity to network over drinks and nibbles.  Do come along and join us, as we haven’t yet found a technology for pouring a complimentary glass of wine for remote participants!


Paul Corney is Managing Director of Knowledge et al. A long-time business consultant with broad global experience, he spent 25 years in London as Senior Manager at Saudi International Bank and as Vice President at Zurich Reinsurance before becoming the Strategy & Business Advisor to the CEO of a dotcom software organization (Sopheon PLC) and Information & Knowledge Advisor to the CEO of a leading reinsurance broker (BMS Group). As such, he was one of the first 'knowledge managers' in London. Outside of work, Corney is a founding trustee of PlanZheores, a London-based charitable organization whose aim is to make good use of surplus food. He regularly speaks and holds Master Classes at international events on information and knowledge management, and is a member of the British Standards Institute KM Standards Committee (KMS/1).

The Twitter hashtag for this event is #netikx101.
