Call For Speakers

Knowledge Flows: Transformation, Technology & Tools  

Submit Your Proposal

Deadline is April 26

We understand this is a difficult time for everyone due to the current health crisis and that you have many other things on your mind, however, our team is still working hard to provide the best ever events in November: KMWorld 2020 & its co-located events Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search & Discovery, and Text Analytics Forum.

If you find you have a few minutes to think of messages, experiences, and expertise that you want to share, please do consider sending us a proposal to speak. We understand that you might not know what your organization has planned regarding travel in the fall, so we are happy to have a conditional response to participation now. We plan to confirm speakers in June (or perhaps earlier) as we will hopefully all have a better view of the future at that point. We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to receiving your proposal.

Today’s organizations are challenged with sustainability, disruption from many forces, changing technology and human perspectives, dealing with analytics for the overwhelming amount of data, navigating complexity in a world of multiple possibilities, and much more. KMWorld 2020 looks at future-focused strategies, technologies and tools to help organizations transform for positive outcomes. By improving knowledge flows and sharing among enterprise communities to speed decision making, innovation, and success, we can approach the future more positively.

KMWorld and its co-located events Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search & Discovery, and Text Analytics Forum, showcase organizations who have creative digital solutions for their future, are allowing experimental and risk taking processes to inform their practices, have made solid progress in changing the culture of their enterprises, and know how to utilize technology in practical and useful ways to charge forward in their industries.

Join the conversation of speakers and colleagues at KMWorld 2020 by sharing your experience and techniques for the 24th annual conference, “Knowledge Flows: Transformation, Technology & Tools” and illustrate knowledge sharing in action for exceptional innovation and bottom line success in any type of organization.
