Press Release: Social KM Debut

KM Institute Adds Course on “Social KM – Collaboration and Community Management” - Debuts First Class in London

(October 6, 2015 – Washington DC and London) The KM Institute, the global leader in Knowledge Management Certification, has partnered with Mr. Rooven Pakkiri, to deliver a course on “Social KM: Collaboration and Community Management.”

Rooven Pakkiri is a noted expert on Social Business and Community Management, and is an acclaimed author, consultant and speaker in the Social Business space.

The debut class will be delivered Nov 10-11, in London, UK, along with KMI partner TFPL.

The class marks the first of many public classes on Social KM to be delivered as both a public and private class (public classes in London and delivered worldwide as a private engagement).

The class is ideal for anyone tasked to lead or refresh a collaboration strategy.

“We are very excited to finally be working with Rooven,” says Eric Weidner, VP of Business Development for KMI.  “He brings a wealth of practical knowledge to the classroom; new ideas and concepts our students can glean from his years as a successful consultant.”

“I was fortunate enough to present at a KMI event recently and immediately found like-minded professionals who share the same passion for knowledge and learning in the digital age," says Pakkiri.

"We quickly realized that we had complimentary skills and the idea of creating a really innovative Social KM course with lots of hands on sessions for students was formed. I am looking forward to working with KMI and creating unique value for students as we explore and master the sharing economy.”

Certification in Social KM
The new “Certified Knowledge Specialist in Collaboration and Communication” will feature Rooven’s 2-day Social KM program, in addition to a 2-day “KM Foundation” from KM Institute (4 days total and available online soon).
