According to Melnick,

"This is like returning to my roots. Marlene and Carl were my mentors and IKIT in many ways still feels like home.  Their work has influenced both my thinking and approach to knowledge management, organizational learning and innovation  Their knowledge building principles and practices lie at the heart of KMIC's mission and mandate and serve as a major differentiator in KMIC's approach to Knowledge Management. I am absolutely delighted to be asked to take part in this event!"
