I have been working with the Taylor Methodology for 20+ years. In addition to the traditional Knowledge Worker event roles such as music facilitation, documentation, environment and video I have also worked extensively in operations and logistics for facilities delivering the process, both permanent facilities and mobile deployments. Other roles have included corporate KWIB (Knowledge Worker Information Broker), Center Manager, sales, and client relationship lead.
Related to this work I was the plant manager for Athenaeum International for eight years. “AI” was founded by Matt Taylor, and has for many years been the globally recognized leader in designing and building collaborative work environments.
In supporting this type of collaborative event, I am often asked, “What is your favorite role?” That is actually a tough question because to me all of the various roles are important and interesting. To look at it from a different vantage point, my favorite role is removing obstacles for the participants so they can do the work they need to accomplish during their time with us.
