It might seem obvious, but knowledge is shared when people meet. We engineer fun, purposeful, mutually beneficial exchanges. How do we do this?

1. We identify what people really want to know

What do people want to learn more about? This can be based on a poll of the participants, or centered on a previously defined training target.

In this phase we collect participants’ feedback on what they would like to learn, where they are at currently, and where they would like to improve. This granular picture of their needs and expectations allows us to move on to Phase 2:

2. Match participants

Within seconds our proprietary matching algorithm pairs up participants according to their responses. This gives highly targeted, relevant matches: participants are optimally matched based on their knowledge levels and learning needs.

3. Focused fun!

Our workshops are serious fun. Through a range of proprietary activities, we encourage participants to break the ice, and get into deep, purposeful knowledge exchange faster. Each knowledge sharing pair is the equivalent of a one-to-one, custom tutorial.The buzz of energy in the room is palpable. These peer-to-peer activities are complemented and enhanced with short, targeted mini-presentations from our expert facilitators.

Through it all, participants take notes on their exchanges by answering polls and surveys. All this data is captured for them to anchor the knowledge nuggets they came across. The data is also highly valuable to organisers as a faithful, fine-grained picture of who knows what within the organisation, and at what speed knowledge sharing is happening.

4. Wrap up

In real time, we share colourful infographics of the event while participants reflect on what they learned – and who they learned it from.

The result: stronger ties between participants, and better knowledge. Each participant has learned something worthwhile that is strongly targeted to their own needs. They were able to ask follow-up questions from their peer on the spot. They also got to know a colleague and their specific expertise.

Each individual has increased their own store of knowledge, but also their knowledge of their network: now they know who knows what, and they have a warm connection to that person.

After the event we also deliver a bespoke, eye-catching, detailed report that provides a snapshot of the current knowledge-sharing landscape in your organisation. This will help you target and tailor future training to ensure maximum impact.
