    Gary,

    Thank you very much for promoting my work and including me in this series. As one of a few people in Canada who work as private consultants and trainers of knowledge mobilization practice, it is difficult for people to know who or what we work with. I would like to point people to the sample of organizations Knowledge Mobilization Works has had the privilege of serving: http://www.knowledgemobilization.net/portfolio.

    Your readers may also be interested in stories about knowledge brokering from knowledge brokers: http://knowledgemobilizationworks.blogspot.com/ as well as a very interesting set of conversations by knowledge brokers in the format of a podcast series: http://knowledgeexchange.podomatic.com/

    Again, thanks and always a pleasure working with you!

      Peter, you are so highly regarded within the Knowledge Mobilization community that I would be amiss if I didn’t include you as one of Canada’s KMb leaders. Glad to promote the valuable KMb work you do.
