Since 2004, we have noticed that we are extremely lucky. Australia has some of the greatest people working in knowledge management in the WORLD. In compiling our list of past Australian KM speakers, where many have spoken in Asia, UK, USA and other area's of the world and we are lucky to have them here in our pocket of the world.

Where we appreciate all the our speakers and every year we research with as many KM professionals around the world, there are some who have been more than generous in sharing their learnings with us on a number of occasions, which is indicated next to their name below.
