ECKM Keynote Speakers

Keynote Outlines

The following are outlines for the Keynote Speeches which will take place at ECKM 2016

Remarkable, Radical Relentless

Alistair Fee

Knowledge management goes hand-in-hand with knowledge creation Remarkable innovation needs radical and relentless effort. Knowledge management requires knowledge creation, knowledge evolution and an awareness of everything. This keynote address will challenge us to explore innovation further than ever before. Innovation is not only incremental but at times it has to be unexpected. We find the unexpected in unusual places. Alistair Fee will sharpen your approach to creativity and brighten your morning with a plethora of national and international creative stories that have changed the direction of many organisations. Great innovation requires tenacity and a flexible, fast moving, observant mindset.  We must all become more agile. Pedagogy, Andragogy and Heutagogy all have their place but outstanding innovation occurs when we create collisions between diverse thinking and all our senses Interesting examples of innovation, conceived in the chaos of commerce, will concentrate and consolidate our collective consensus so that we can become more creative. Let's look at how some super businesses have become ideas colliders.
