Well-said, Arthur.  It’s likely that few here would question the benefits of information sharing. 


At the risk of stating the obvious, any such sharing should occur only consciously and carefully — particularly (as here) when multiple organizations are involved.  Even for an informal session like this, you might consider delineating “rules of engagement” agreed to (at least informally) in advance by the participants and governing any subsequent distribution and/or use of the findings. When we convene these kinds of discussion groups at The Conference Board, for example, we use the Chatham House rule:


Perhaps you do something like this already, in which case: never mind!  😉

This is a great initiative and I wish I could have joined you (apologies for not being part of it).

I am sure that you will create value for David and all involved in the session.


The experience of sharing knowledge to help others (through activities like Peer Assist) is a great demonstration of what can be achieved when people openly share knowledge. It not only brings tangible actions for the beneficiary, it bring a range of intangible benefits like connection, relationship, trust and a sense of contribution.


These cannot be bought, only given and received by people in mutually beneficial trusted relationships.
