Steve Dale

Collabor8now Ltd

Steve Dale is a passionate community and collaboration ecologist, creating off-line and on-line environments that foster conversations and engagement. Stephen’s considerable experience as an information and knowledge management professional has enabled him to blend technology solutions with an in-depth understanding of behavioural characteristics that encourage people to self-organize, collaborate and co-create. In particular the development and nurture of communities of practice for knowledge sharing, learning and innovation as part of a sustainable ‘knowledge ecosystem’.

He is both an evangelist and practitioner in the use of Web 2.0 technologies and Social Media applications to support personal learning and knowledge sharing.

He was the business lead and information architect for the community of practice platform currently deployed across the UK local government sector, the largest network of its type, and continues to play a key role in the support of virtual communities of practice for value creation in public services.

He is a regular contributor to professional journals and magazines and was recently appointed as Chairman of Incisive Media’s Online Information Executive Committee (and frantically planning for this year's conference on 30th Nov - 2nd December!).
