What KM4Dev members say...

I started lurking in this group since the ELDIS workshop at IDS September 2016. Thanks to everyone because I am learning a lot just following the conversation. I work at Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness, involved in communication / knowledge brokering. I am also working (over the weekends) on my PhD in which I am exploring the role of communication in facilitating change through research. The digital turn is an important part of my research. I wrote a piece on the ELDIS workshop Winds of Change. Thanks again and best wishes!

Patricia Canto, Orkestra - Basque Institute of Competitiveness

"I will also be in Vienna, October 15th 2016, and hoping to meet you and understand more fully your work. I am a long-time learner on and admirer of KM4Dev. Great minds! "                                    

Diana Woolis, Carey Institute for Global Good

"I feel so moved by all the positive reactions I received every day since I posted my request. Just as if I have numerous secret hidden friends ready to give a hand ! It's a feeling not easy to express ; the kind of strength you sense when you're not alone and that makes you dare and never afraid of taking new challenges... merci beaucoup."       

Yennenga Kompaoré, Performances, Burkina Faso

"I’m proud of being part of this collaborative community.  Thank you all." 

Marcelo Yamada, Promon Engenharia, Brasil
