Knowledge sharing occurs when people are genuinely interested in helping one another improve decision making and develop new capacities for action. - Peter Senge, The Fifth Discipline

 

The Knowledge Sharing Dinner Series

Our Mission: To bring together experts and SME business owners to share and explore knowledge, improve decision making and build the capacity and capability of your business right away.

Information is Noise – Knowledge is Power

A 2016 survey of 300 business leaders from 16 countries conducted by CIMA and AICPA found that senior leaders are struggling to make the right decisions, with 72% of organizations admitting to at least one strategic initiative failing in the last three years as a result of flaws in their decision making processes.

A top cause of poor decision making identified in the study is information overload, with 36% saying their organization is not coping with information overload, and that it is making life harder for those charged with decision making because they are unable to extract relevant information and turn it into insight.

The dilemma is clear: on the one hand, business leaders receive too much information, while on the other hand, they don’t get enough knowledge and insights to make sound decisions and develop new capacities for action.

Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline distinguishes information sharing (giving and receiving data, facts and opinions) from knowledge sharing, with knowledge sharing occurring when people are genuinely interested in helping one another improve decision making and develop new capacities for action.

Every dinner in the series is based around Four Guiding Principles:

  1. Singular Focus: Every dinner focuses on exploring a specific business issue which SMEs have consistently identified as a significant concern.
  2. Multiple perspectives: We bring together four experts from four different industries/professions to provide multiple perspectives on the issue.
  3. Relevance and Significance: You’ll have the opportunity to explore the issue in depth with each of the experts to determine how it applies to your business.
  4.  Capacity for Action: You’ll leave with a clear and prioritised action plan developed for YOUR business – NOT a generic “To Do” list.

To ensure an optimal experience each dinner is capped at 32 attendees.

Attendance is by invitation only and is open to Synergy48 Group members, their clients and invited guests.
