KnowledgeNET – A Learning Platform

KnowledgeNET is a learning platform with access to industry professionals, experts and thought-leaders. Our curators match designated employees to members of our network who have agreed to share their knowledge for an arranged fee.

Our Mentoring and Coaching Program is an addendum to a client’s employee development plan. We work with clients to select Mentees by scientifically assessing their potential to improve their skills and competencies in both their current and future role (succession planning). Subject to nature and length of interaction, we then match the Mentee with a short-list of Mentors and/or Coaches who were successful in the targeted roles and when possible, share a similar leadership style. The Mentee and Mentor/Coach determine together the scope and duration of the collaboration. 

Knowledge On-Call

As a learning platform, KnowledgeNET has advantages for clients and their employees alike. It offers workforce leverage for the former and elasticity in gathering decisive tactical information for the latter. Companies that reimagine their business models by offering key employees a contingent on-call expert or providing experiential wisdom from a retired high-performer creates unique retention and competitive edge.

How it Works

Whether one needs a mentoring coach, a one-off independent opinion, a personal sounding board, or advice from a subject-matter veteran, the motivation to seek external expertise will be measured by its on-call utility. Our KnowledgeNET Curators recognize that the price, time and effort must be lower, and quality of advice greater than the cost of gathering the information and/or experiential knowledge from inside a client’s own network.

Clients Choose Their Advisor/Mentor

The interface with our KnowledgeNET Curator is straight forward, you tell us what you’re seeking to learn, the scope of information expected, the preferred interaction and the timeframe required. We identify the relevant expertise through our in-house networks or conduct an external search for the most knowledgeable source. Our KnowledgeNET Curator presents you with a short-list of Advisors/Mentors, a profile of their expertise and their billing rate. You select your preferred Advisor/Mentor and our team look after the logistics including the billing.
