Enterprise Knowledge Playing Unprecedented Role at KMWorld 2021

KMWorld Connect LogoEnterprise Knowledge (EK) is playing a central role at this year’s KMWorld Conference. Continuing EK’s principles of thought leadership and industry guidance, EK is playing an unprecedented role at KMWorld, the world’s leading KM conference. This year, EK experts are delivering an unprecedented thirteen different sessions across KMWorld and the related events including Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search and Discovery, and Text Analytics.

The virtual conference runs from November 15-18th, with preceding workshops delivered on the 12th. The conference will provide practical advice, inspiring thought leadership, and access to in-depth training and workshops on how KM and related disciplines can provide value for your organization and transform your business. This year’s conference theme, Knowledge Sharing in the Age of New Technologies, focuses on culture, people processes, and the many different types of technologies supporting organizations as they excel in their industries.

To continue our tradition of thought leadership and in order to add a social and interactive element otherwise missing from many virtual conferences over the last two years, EK will also be hosting an open live stream reception on EK’s Youtube channel on Monday the 15th of November from 5-7pm. Over the course of two hours, EK’s CEO Zach Wahl and EK Consultant Adam Eltarhoni will speak with each of EK’s KMWorld presenters as well as assorted other guests. All KMWorld attendees, as well as the wider Knowledge Management community will be able to join the session, ask questions, and participate in the conversation via chat.

On the final day of KMWorld, following the closing keynote, Wahl will also present a live version of Knowledge Cast, the number one KM Podcast in the world, as ranked by Feedspot. This special episode of Knowledge Cast will include several KMWorld attendees sharing a live discussion on the themes from this year’s conference. In addition to EK’s prominent speaking roles and other thought leadership, EK is serving as a sponsor at the conference for the eighth year in a row.
