Workplace Week Fringe Event: Automation & AI

Workplace Week Fringe Event: Automation & AI

Warwick Business School’s Knowledge & Innovation Network (KIN) and Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF) will be facilitating a breakfast briefing during Workplace Week (13-17th November) on the topic of ‘Automation & AI in the workplace‘. Workplace automation is becoming more widespread, and today’s AI-enabled, information-rich tools are increasingly able to handle jobs that in the past have been exclusively done by people (including tax returns, language translations, accounting, even some types of surgery) – automation is destined to have profound implications…

Online Information Conference & Show Closes

Online Information Conference & Show Closes

As reported in a brief statement posted to the Online Information Conference website, there will not be an exhibition or conference this year, 2014, with no certainty that it will re-appear in the future. Another victim of these austere times no doubt, with exhibitors, delegates and organisations paying closer scrutiny to the value of every penny spent. Rightly so, but nevertheless, it is a sad reflection of our times, where the opportunities for establishing new connections and developing new relationships…

Social Workplace Conference 2012

Social Workplace Conference 2012

I’m looking forward to the  Social Workplace Conference 2012, taking place this week on Thursday, May 24, 2012.  I’m anticipating hearing how various organisations have overcome some of the barriers I listed in my earlier post on this topic. The line up of speakers and the organisations they represent should make for a highly rewarding day of learning and sharing good practice in the deployment of social software in the workplace, and – more importantly – the organisational changes required (e.g. operational, cultural, leadership) that…

Social Business And The Collaborative Workforce

Social Business And The Collaborative Workforce

Better productivity, lower travel and communication costs, higher customer satisfaction, more innovation, increases in revenue and profit, faster access to knowledge, improved connection to internal experts and more. Why wouldn’t every organisation flock to this vision of an agile, connected, transparent, people-centred and more efficient business?

Reflections: Online Information Conference 2011

Reflections: Online Information Conference 2011

Pretty exhausting, incredibly insightful and hugely enjoyable: that would sum up my three days as Chairman of this year’s Online Information Conference 2011, held at the Olympia Conference Centre between 29th November and 1st December. The last time the event will be run at this venue, but more about that later. It was impossible to be everywhere and hear all of the presentations, so my reflections are by necessity limited to what I personally heard, saw or facilitated. To provide…

Online Information Conference 2011

Online Information Conference 2011

I was pondering the imminence of this year’s this year’s Online Information Conference (29 Nov to 01 Dec) and was reminded of a quote by Abraham Lincoln: “The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time”. Is it really almost a year since the last conference? Where has the time gone, and has life changed that much? We’ve seen the ‘Arab Spring’ and the riots in the UK; two sides of a coin that…

Online Information 2010 – countdown

I’m privileged to be chairing this year’s Online Information Conference, which starts this Tuesday, 30th November and runs until 2nd December.

The exhibition covers 6 different subject areas: Content Resources, ePublishing Solutions, Library Management, Content Management, Search Solutions and Social Media. It’s hard to believe that 12 months have elapsed since the previous conference….

Thriving as a 21st Century Information Professional

Thriving as a 21st Century Information Professional

I will be addressing the Network for Information and Knowledge Exchange (NetIKX) members at their meeting on Wednesday 29th September about the challenges and opportunities facing information professionals in today’s information rich, time poor environment. To some extent this is going back to my roots, having been more closely involved in the dark arts of knowledge management (and specifically on-line communities) these past few years. However, information management and knowledge management are two sides of the same coin, and I’ve…
