We would like to thank all the members of Knowledge Hub - this award
is for you too! It is also through your effort, collaborative working
and support that we have been recognised for the award.
Here’s part of the submission that helped us achieve this prestigious award:
Dwindling public sector budgets and diminished finances and time have
left little room for face-to-face meetings, professional development
and training. This created the need for an easily accessible,
collaborative space where public, private and non-profit sector
partners could come to work together and share knowledge and expertise.
The Knowledge Hub provides a digital collaborative space that
supports the public sector in addressing these challenges. Using a
range of digital tools, it enables members to connect, communicate and
collaborate through its expert community and knowledge management
support and training.
The platform has not only been used extensively by various public
sector outfits to improve real-life outcomes, it has also helped
members develop their digital skills and learn new community
management and facilitation skills. Its impact has been felt in
various ways including cost savings, improved productivity, knowledge
retention and cross-sector partnerships.
Building from well-established community of practice principles, the
Knowledge Hub is an excellent example of combining technology with
Even more commendable is the submission of evidence that demonstrates
its benefits and impact.
“It has been transformative as a communications tool, able to work

information. It is the principal communications, knowledge sharing and

Commercial Function, spread over 150 UK locations.” –
Ian Mackie, Head of Commercial Community Engagement,

approaches.” – Henley Forum 2020 Awards judging panel
