Sharing our knowledge with Information Managers of the future

Metataxis is pleased to be invited to contribute to the continuing development of knowledge and information leaders. The City, University of London Department of Library and Information Science (or CityLIS for short) provides one of the most well-regarded courses on library and information science in the UK and we are please to be given the opportunity to contribute. Our director Noeleen Schenk has donated her time to CityLIS in order to share her expertise on knowledge management. Noeleen will be in excellent company, delivering a joint lecture with Ian Rodwell, Head of Client Knowledge and Learning at Linklaters.

The delivery of the joint lecture has become something of an annual event. Metataxis have contributed to the information management course at CityLIS for a couple of years now, and it is something we look forward to each year. Making that connection between academic learning and practical application is important, ensuring graduates emerge from courses better prepared for real-life information management challenges. Noeleen and Ian will be delivering a lecture that focuses on knowledge management theory with a strong focus on practice and technique.

Noeleen’s understanding of knowledge management theory and practice has been extremely useful for us when working with clients. Having a knowledge management background can be helpful in many obvious, but sometimes unexpected ways.

If you want to know more about how you can leverage these methods to improve information management, or just want a general catch up about knowledge management use the contact form on the right.

A proper night out with Metataxis

It’s been a long time since we have had the opportunity to meet up with our associates, partners or clients face to face. So we were absolutely delighted to see so many at our Associate Night at the Edinboro Castle last week. There were many familiar faces there, some who we haven’t seen in over a year. And then there were those who we have only ever spoken via screens who we were excited to meet in person.

For some of us it was our first proper night out since early 2020. After over a year of restrictions we’ve learned to treasure what was previously something we took for granted; meeting colleagues at the pub for a good catch up. While we’ve all managed to continue to work remotely surprisingly well, nothing replaces the immediacy of a hug, a smile, or just enjoying being in the same space.

We hope those who attended our Associates Night enjoyed themselves as much as we at Metataxis did. And we hope that we get to see our friends and associates again very soon.
