Following the awards ceremony, Brian delivered an inspiring orientation of the intranet to a packed room of KM professionals that had come to learn the secrets of intranet success. I was not surprised by the turnout since Intranets rarely get this type of exposure. And a rare opportunity it was to take a look inside what the judges referred to as the “best precedent management system they had ever seen in a law firm ever.” Brian spoke eloquently about the company’s mandate to unite geographically dispersed offices and how the portal could bring people closer together. He gave examples of how the firm’s people directory engages users to declare their work availability and language skills. And the audience learned how knowledge resources are successfully being shared in a trusting environment where lawyers give and receive with confidence.

Congratulations to Bennett Jones for this major accomplishment!
