Innovation and Collaboration in corporate environments

The first meeting of 2012 will be a KMRC/HKKMS joint sponsored event on the 17th January 2012.

The speaker is Annalie Killian, from Australian Mutual Provident (AMP)  who has the wonderful job title ” Catalyst for Magic”  Annalie is an award winning thought leader in driving enterprise collaboration and innovation.  This is a must attend event.

Join us on the 17th January at 7:00pm in Room BC305, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Quick synopsis of the talk
Whilst many other corporate programmes have faltered, the AMP innovation culture has steadily grown, and today enjoys a key strategic focus at the Leadership level.  Annalie will talk about how collaboration and innovation have joined hands to shift the culture of AMP, outline the eco-system approach she espouses, and explain the key role that the AMPLIFY Festival of Innovation and Thought Leadership, an event she created and produce every 2 years, as a catalyst and accelerator of change.”

Who is Annalie?
Annalie’s role focuses on cultivating a culture of innovation and collaboration, helping people across all levels explore new trends, experiment with ideas and emerging technologies, and find ways to apply or commercialise them. She founded AMP’s crowdsourcing innovation programme which has grown from a grassroots movement in 2003 to a company‐wide programme by 2009.

The topic of Knowledge Management is, for many , closely related to Innovation. And one reason for a rise in interest in KM is because it has become an imperative for both private and public organisations to innovate to remain relevant in the highly competitive and fast changing modern world.   At the next meeting of the Society we welcome Eric Spain as our speaker and his topic Innovation. Eric’s talk also links nicely to Professor Dr. Wilkesmann’s speech to the September meeting of the Society . She touched on the concept of Ignorance Management and Eric takes the discussion further and proposes that one means of creating valuable knowledge out of ignorance is via Innovation.

Further details on the talk and the speaker can be found below.

The meeting will be held at our usual venue on Thursday 3 Nov Conference Room 2, 22/F, United Centre 95 Queensway (Admiralty MTR Station).

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


My colleagues and I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
