Event Details

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) hosts roundtables every other Friday afternoon. These are informal discussions and presentations, on a wide range of topics of interest to TNB's staff, nonprofit clients, and friends.

Our featured speaker on December 6th will be Robero Cremonini; he will talk about his experience with knowledge management (KM) in the philanthropic sector. After introducing some key definitions, Roberto will describe specific knowledge management needs and applications in philanthropy and share examples of solutions he built working with foundations over the past 10 years. He will also discuss some of the current trends and key Knowledge Management issues that philanthropy is grappling with today.

Here are Roberto's goals for the session:

  • To share his definition of KM, so that everyone attending is on the same page (and so that attendees can question his definition, if they want to).

  • To help attendees to understand what is unique about the philanthropic sector and how it approaches KM.

  • To be concrete and offer some technology solutions.

  • To stimulate the conversation and have attendees offer ideas to him to take back to the philanthropic sector.

Here's a bit more about Roberto:

Roberto Cremonini is the founder of Cremonini Consulting Network. Using his 18 years of experience in knowledge management, he helps foundations and nonprofits improve their performance through efficient knowledge processes, organizational learning practices, and innovative technology tools. Between 2003 and 2010, Roberto was Chief Knowledge & Learning Officer at the Barr Foundation, where he managed the team responsible for strategy, evaluation, communications, and information technology. During his tenure at the foundation, he built all systems that seamlessly integrate data, documents, and knowledge with the foundation’s processes. Roberto is a former trustee of Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) and the Cambridge Community Foundation and sits on the board of Jose’ Mateo Ballet Theatre. He received his MS in electrical engineering, summa cum laude, and his PhD in computer science from the University of Bologna. He holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Please note that this will not be a sales pitch for any product or service; it will be an educational opportunity for nonprofit professionals to learn along with their peers from other organizations.

We hope that you can join us for a lively conversation! Please respond to this invitation, to let us know whether you'll be attending.

Best regards from Deborah
