Knowledge Mobilization Works has the privilege to work with a broad range of clients. This mix of on-the-ground perspectives – from small local non-profit service organizations to large international associations -gives us a horizontal view.
We see things that others may miss. We help create linkages between silos. We facilitate conversations that need to happen. When we learn something new, we share it with our clients, so that the value of their work can be enhanced. Let us help you do more with your knowledge.
Elizabeth Murray, Project Coordinator, Radiation Treatment Program, Cancer Care Ontario says: The CoP (Community of Practice) development workshop provided by Peter Levesque from Knowledge Mobilization Works was informative, engaging and interactive. With a strong understanding in adult learning principles, Peter’s presentation style keeps participants interested and engaged throughout the day. The workshop provided our program with the forum for which to discuss our successes, challenges and next steps when forming our Communities of Practice. The tools and workbook provided by Peter are an excellent resource that we can refer to often. Thank you Peter!
Amy Coupal, Executive Director, Curriculum Services Canada says: Thank you for your presentation and follow up conversations. You were truly a hit! You seemed to appeal to everyone both more technically savvy and those less so. Your message was clear and accessible no matter where people were on the continuum. Thanks again for doing this.
Dr. Budd Hall, University of Victoria says: Peter is a visionary in the field of knowledge mobilization and knowledge strategies for community well-being. He brings a depth of theoretical understanding about the role of knowledge in social transformation to the challenges of using knowledge to solve the complex and multi-sectoral issues of these times. He is a gifted networker, a superb facilitator and a creative designer of knowledge mobilization and related strategies. He is comfortable with business, government, academic and community audiences. He is Canada’s leading voice in knowledge mobilization.
Jonathan Green, Director of Knowledge Management, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill says: Peter is on the leading edge of thought within the knowledge management. His, as well as his Canadian colleagues’, mantra is “knowledge mobilization” a concept that lends a much needed social and action orientation to the knowledge management arena. Based on my personal experience and exposure in the field I believe the methodologies he and others are developing are responding to shifting realities and will have staying power and practicality for society in the coming decade.
