KnowledgeFest: If I Knew Then What I Know Now ...

Wednesday, 14 March, 2018 - 14:00

Based on the phrase “If I knew then what I know now …” this KnowledgeFest will challenge leaders to distill and articulate insight gained during their careers that they wish they had figured out earlier. Perhaps it was a big mistake, or some advice from a mentor, or simply the benefit of hindsight, but all leaders have nuggets of wisdom to share. This session aims to do just that: facilitate peer-to-peer knowledge sharing through a structured exercise and open discussion. Check your ego at the door and come prepared to give and take with your accomplished peers from around the world.
