Knowledge Management Australia Congress is in its eleventh year and over this period we have seen KM go through many changes, answer many questions and confound many people. KM has changed as often as the social media landscape has changed, bringing many challenges but also opening many doors for collaboration and innovation.

This will be the most important knowledge management event in the Asia-Pacific for over the last ten years, as it has brought the together a wide and diverse spectrum of thought leaders nationally and internationally. There will be a number of panel discussions across different industries on how to make collaboration work not just in your organisation and through different divisions, but also with your external business relationships both local and globally.
