Speaker Prof. Dr. Maxie Wilkesmann

We welcome Professor Dr. Wilkesmann to the September meeting of the Society.
While the focus of KM has mainly been about the capturing and sharing of knowledge, how can we draw benefits from studying the unknown , sometimes referred to as  Ignorance Management. The session will have relevance to not
only those in the medical profession , but also those taking important decisions when they lack all the information they need.

The meeting will be held at our usual venue Conference Room 1, 22/F, United Centre 95 Queensway (Admiralty MTR Station)

The event is free for members of the HKKMS and HK$200 for non-members
