What makes me proud, is the presence here of three of our major clients (as well as one or two others we have worked with over the years in a more minor capacity).

BP - Tom and I were part of the BP KM team in the late 90s, have provided BP with KM training and KM services ever since, and helped with the major KM refresh in 2004. BP demonstrates perhaps the most embedded KM system I have seen outside the military.

BBC - Tom and I consulted to the BBC Live and Learn Team from 2002 through 2004, and helped to introduce many of the core processes of KM. Much credit is also due to Euan Semple and his pioneering introduction of web 2.0 tools. The BBC is an organisation of knowledge sharers, by remit and by nature.

Mars - we held the first KM course in Mars in 2002 (EuroDisney - I remember it well), were at the KM launch in Lisbon, helped draft the KM strategy, and provided training and KM services for many years. Their successes have been enormous - well done Linda, Kirsty and the team.
