Because You Need to KnowOpinion

KM Lobby PKS – Incredible Edition – Hélène Russell

This podcast is part of the Because You Need to Know series from Pioneer Knowledge Services.

Hélène Russell of TheKnowledgeBusiness is a lawyer (non-practicing) and expert in knowledge management (KM).

After working in litigation defense work for eight years, Hélène worked in-house as a knowledge lawyer (this is an in-house subject matter expert and KM support for a department). She has worked as a self-employed KM consultant since 2008.

Hélène specializes in translating complex academic thought leadership and cross-boundary theories into practical tools to improve the efficiency and profitability of real-life law firms. She has a particular interest in encouraging the sharing of more complex forms of knowledge and the people-challenges of KM.

As part of her executive MBA, Hélène studied antecedents to knowledge sharing within UK law firms for her dissertation.

Hélène runs regular open KM training online and a global online KM training group under the Knowledge Network brand, and bespoke in-house training.

Hélène is the author of the Knowledge Management Handbook published by the Law Society of England and Wales, Practical Projects in Legal KM published by Legal Monitor, and a contributor to five books by Ark. Practical Projects in Legal KM was declared “clear, succinct, jargon-free and one of the most pragmatic KM texts I have come across … Anyone dealing with legal KM should have a copy of this book. It’s as simple as that” by Head of Client Knowledge and Learning at Linklaters, Ian Rodwell.

Hélène has spoken at various events: Ark’s KM Legal, Butterworth’s PSL conference, and for UWE, BLS and Allice.
