January 2014 Seminar: When space matters (for collaboration, innovation and knowledge transfer)


Paul delivered a thrilling tour around the world, looking at how the physical space available for knowledge management will affect the outcomes. He shared his wealth of experience with appropriate slides and anecdotes to ensure his audience were given plenty of insights into what works well and what less so. Paul also provided practical exercises to wake up our brains and get us thinking more adventurously. If stand up meetings in dramatic scenery did not appeal to everyone, we certainly gained a wide ranging set of tips to help us deliver with more breadth of knowledge.
